  • [01] President Emil Constantinescu's message to the Army

    As the RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI (RRA) reports, in the message he sent to the Army through Romania's Defence Minister Victor Babiuc, President Emil Constantinescu has thanked the Army for its readiness in recent actions aimed at defending the democratic state institutions, saving human lives and civil properties, and restoring peace, order and normality. The Romanian head of state believes that the Army, as crucial institution of the Romanian State exercising discipline, honesty and attachment to the basic democratic values, has succesfully fulfilled its mission. The army had remarkable results in the comprehensive and difficult reform process, and these results proved that, in this respect, the army was one of the most advanced insitutions of the Romanian State. The president is confident that that the army will further prove its commitment to fight the difficulties a high austerity budget and persistent economic deterioration may cause. RADOR

    [02] Romanian Prime Minister Radu Vasile on a Visit to Hungary

    Romanian Prime Minister Radu Vasile has arrived in Budapest on Monday for an official visit following an invitation by his Hungarian counterpart, Viktor Orban. The talks between the two prime ministers are expected to start on Tuesday morning. Before leaving the Otopeni International Airport in Bucharest, the Romanian Prime Minister said that Hungary should definitely prove that it was supporting Romania's efforts to join the European and Eur-Atlantic structures. "As the country was accepted to join NATO and the EU, our relations with Hungary are now most important and Hungary should clearly prove its support of Romania's efforts", Prime Minister Radu Vasile said. The Romanian delegation includes Transport Minister Traian Basescu, the head of the State Ownership Fund (FPS), the head of the Government's Department for minority affairs, and MPs representing the Democratic Union of Ethnic Hungarians in Romania (UDMR). According to the RRA, the meeting in Budapest is the first such meeting since the new Hungarian government came to power. RADOR

    [04] Romanian-Slovak Talks

    Talks on the Romanian-Slovak relations have been taking place on Monday between Mihai Razvan Ungureanu, State Secretary with Romania's Foreign Ministry (MAE), and his Slovak counterpart Jaroslav Chlebo. The talks focused on the agenda of bilateral contacts this year including mutual visits at presidential and ministerial level (the prime ministers and the foreign ministers of the two countries). The two sides have considered their disappointing economic relations and they admitted they should intensify the contacts between the presidents of the Chambres of Industry and Trade in the two countries and the state bodies co-ordinating the privatisation process. State Secretary Mihai Razvan Ungureanu said the guest asked him to express his position in case the Vishegrad Group was to exercise some restraint in issuing entry visas. Quoted by the RRA, Mr Ungureanu said there were positive signs that both the Czech Republic and Hungary did not intend to change their entry visa policy towards Romania. Another round of talks was reported between the Slovak guest and MAE State Secretary Elena Zamfirescu. The talks included issues concerning the European and Euro- Atlantic integration, the OSCE and the regional co- operation. RADOR
