    [02] PRM protests against Szeckler Forum's resolutions

    In a press communique, the Greater Romania Party (PRM) has strongly condemned the resolutions of the Szeckler Forum in Cernat under the presidency of bishop Laszlo Tokes. PRM believes that the "happening in Cernatul de Jos is a serious and dangerous escalation of the Hungarian irredentism since August 1940 up until now, and a genuine declaration of war to the Romanian national united state". The PRM is demanding the immediate outlaw of the UDMR, and the emergency expulsion of bishop Tokes. The PRM believes that the counties of Harghita and Covasna should be militarised as the Hungarian minority already started the ethnic cleansSng of Romanians since December 1989. The PRM calls for a government of national unity and blames Romania's President Emil Constantinescu for his position towards the UDMR. RADOR

    [04] CEFTA meeting

    While coming back from Prague where he attended the meeting of the CEFTA prime ministers, Romania's Prime Minister Radu Vasile said the CEFTA has decided the setting up a subcommittee for agricultural affairs to examine the policies and the subsidy procedures in each CEFTA member country. According to the prime minSster, the decision was made after participants examined the recent developments in the trade with agricultural products between the CEFTA countries. He declared the debates also focused on ways of extending the cooperation concerning the circulation of capital - a very difficult issue, he believed, as each country was connected to capitals abroad. Mr Radu Vasile said he disagreed with his Cezch counterpart's proposal of a particular institution for the Visegrad countries. While attending a radio programme on Saturday, Prime Minister Radu Vasile has concluded that the mutual support between the CEFTA countries was the only solution to a fair European integration process. Agriculture Minister Dinu Gavrilescu said recently that a "protectionist wind blowed among the CEFTA member countries". The deputy commissioner for industries and services in Romania's House of Deputies, Barbu Pitigoi, also an MP representing the ruling Christian Democrat national Peasant Party (PNTCD), explained thS allegation: "There are countries of different industrial development among the CEFTA members; their policies of financing the economic departments is also different from state to state. Such differences have forced some of the member countries to impose customs duties in their attempt to prevent an unbearable situation for the producers". RADOR
