dated December 20, 1954: Tito's tribute to Delhi

Speaking at a civic reception accorded to him on December 19 in Delhi's historic Red Fort, the President of Yugoslavia, Marshal Tito, paid a tribute to Delhi, describing it as a symbol of the vitality, of the creative power and the friendly loving spirit of the whole Indian nation. He expressed the view that it would be hard to find another city in the world, which so fully reflected the soul and history of a nation as Delhi did. Of the common bonds of friendship between India and Yugoslavia, Marshal Tito said the two countries were among those "which are waging a consistent struggle for the maintenance of world peace, for the development of relations based on equality and friendship with all nations." Later, Marshal Tito had a glimpse of resurgent rural India when he visited villages in the Sonepat community project, 25 miles north of New Delhi. The people of the three villages, Nathurpur, Raso and Badhkhalsa in the project area, which is in the Punjab, gave a warm reception to the distinguished visitor and the party accompanying him.
