The thirty-five states that signed the Final Act of the Conference on Sesurity and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) in Helsinki in August 19751 came together on October 4, 1977 in Belgrade for the first CSCE followup meeting, designed to conduct a full review of the 1975 undertakings. The Belgrade meeting ended on March 9, 1978, after more than five months of inconclusive sparring among its various blocs or caucuses.
