"Yugoslavia - USA relations in Arab - Israel conflict 1967-1971"

War on the Middle East in 1967 was the complicated geopolitical position of the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia and its relations with the United States. On one hand, due to continuing to make good relations with Arab countries, in first place with Egypt in order to form Non-Aligned Movement, Josip Broz Tito was compelled to stay on their side although he was aware that Arabs with their behavior caused the war. On the other hand, Yugoslavia - USA relations were in downfall, and this war threatened to make them worse. On which way the Yugoslavian Government made a balance between good relations with the USA as a guarantee of their sovereignty over the Soviet Union and working with Arab countries in the Non-Aligned Movement? That story will tell us MSc Dušan Radonjić, Ph.D. candidate of Faculty of Political Sciences in Belgrade, expert for American - Yugoslavian relations during the Cold War. 

The moderator is Ph.D. Rastislav Stojsavljevic, a doctor of geosciences and a master historian. He is employed at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics in Novi Sad as an assistant professor, where he teaches elementary students in the subject "Regional Geography of the United States of America". He obtained his master's degree at the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad on the topic "Territorial Expansion of the United States of America: 1783-1912".
