TJJITHSDAY, SEPT. 11, 1992 Tito Confident Soviets Plan No Attack on His Country in Near Future By ALEX SINGLETON SPLIT, Yugoslavia «|—Premier Marshal Tito said he is convinced the Soviets are not planning an attack on Yugoslavia in the near future. If it does come, he warns, It will spark World War in. In an Interview with a group of visiting Norwegian newspapermen, released last night, the Yugoslav leader emphasized his nation would resist any attack. "We arc ready," he said. "Our people cannot he bluffed." Tito described (he chances of such a Soviet move as a "constant and latent" but not "imminent" danger. He reasoned thai Soviet aggression would bring on a third world war because, he said, the West was aware that Russian conquest of his country would mean Russian domination of the Mediterranean lifeline to the East. In his answers, Tito showed confidence in the strength of his regime despite the hostility of his Cominform neighbors and economic troubles stemming from one drought in 1350 'and another this year. He also made clear his reasons for believing the West would continue to send him military equipment. . "The question of defense of Western Europe depends to a very large degree on Yugoslavia, no matter what the propagandists say," he declared. "We are very conscious of this : and know very well that it Is not a matter of indifference to the West whether Yugoslavia or the Soviet Union is sitting on the Isonze (Yugoslavia's river boundary with Italy) and Ihe Adriatic. "If such a colossus (Russia) was on the Adrialic the Mediterranean wonld not belong to Western countries any more. That is the least of what would happen. I am convinced the West is aware of this." Among his other answers, Tito made these points: 1. Yugoslavia could defend herself successfully against any at- AcJm. Ingram Dies in West Htort Attack Takes tack by one of the Soviet satclliles. A general assault with Russian backing would be a different mailer, but the Yugoslav leader said he did not expect this. 1. Yugoslavia needs more military equipment from the United Stales, especially jet planes, heavy armor and such special devices as radar. 3. Present and future-scheduled talks among Yugoslav, Greek and | Turkish military leaders are only "Ilia first step" toward co-operative defense measures. "There Is much common ground where we i can and must co-operate," he said, but formal pacts are unnecessary. 4. The effects of this summer's severe drouqht will not be as serl- mis as those which followed Ihe 1050 disaster. 5 Yugoslavia will not eive up her claims an Trieste, the stra-i tegic Adriatic seaport which Is t!ie i subject of a bilter dispute between ' this country and Italy. 6. There are "tremendous" dif- tlerences between communism as [practised in Russia and in Yugoslavia. "What they have In Russia I is not communism at all. . They haX-e deviated from the road of building up socialism lo the road of state capitalism. They have no democracy while \ve are developing genuine socialist democracy." SAN DiEOO. Calif.
