W>—Yugoslav Vice Premier Bdvard KardelJ called today for the temporary re establishment, of the 38lh Parallel as the demarcation line in Korea He atlacked those supporting Norlh Korea's aggressive course. In a policy speech before the U N. General* Assembly. Ihe Yugo slav official declared that Premie Marshal Tito's government "con slclers that the present policy the government of North Korea does not serve the cause of Ihe true independence and unity of the Korean people." In the same speech he charged that the Soviet bloc is Increasing the pressure on Yugoslavia by provoking border Incidents almost Although he did not mention Ihe Soviet Union or Communist China by name. Kardelj's meaning on Korea was obvious when he said: '•Those who are inspiring the polfcy and activities of the North' Korean government have embarked upon an aggressive course, whose consequences will havS to be borne by the people of the whole world." Kardelj's statement regarding the 38th Parallel came at n time when it appeared likely U. N. forces in Korea soon might reach that old dividing line. He made no specific reference to U. N. troops. In the security council Yugoslavia abstained on the June resolution ordering military action against North Korea. ... The United Nations. Kardelj jatd, "should strive. U) find IL solution which would bring about a cessa tlon of hostilities »nd the temporary reestabllsriment-^pehdlng the achievement of Korean unity—ol the former'demarcation line aloli| the 38th Parallel." , 'c" Kardelj. who also, is YugoslAvli foreign minister, charged the Soviet Block has accelerated its campaign against his country by provoking new border incidents.
