Tito's son named Croatian envoy to Indonesia


JAKARTA: A generation ago the leaders of Indonesia and Yugoslavia helped set up the Non-Aligned Movement -- a grouping meant to offer a middle path during the Cold War.

Now, in an echo of times gone by, the son of Yugoslavia's late strongman Josip Broz Tito has become Croatia's ambassador to an Indonesian government led by the daughter of its founder, Sukarno.

Aleksandar Broz, a former vice president of Croatia's state-owned oil company, arrived in Jakarta over the weekend after being named to the post late last year.

"I'm not sure what role the non-aligned connection can play nowadays, it certainly cannot hurt relations", Broz said on Monday. Tito and president Soekarno were instrumental in setting up the Non-Aligned Movement at the height of the Cold War in the late 1950s. --AP
