OMRI DAILY DIGEST
No. 132, 10 July 1995

MEETING OF SLOVAK, HUNGARIAN, AUSTRIAN LEADERS. Austrian Chancellor
Franz Vranitzky met with Slovak and Hungarian Premiers Vladimir Meciar
and Gyula Horn in the Austrian town of Rust on 7 June. According to
Vranitzky, the goal of the trilateral partnership is to create a zone of
stability and cooperation in Central Europe and to establish contacts
for EU membership, Slovak media reported. The three leaders signed an
agreement on economic and security cooperation. Vranitzky and Horn also
signed a cooperation agreement aimed at securing an EU credit to develop
border areas. Pravda reported Meciar as saying that Slovakia is still
examining alternatives to the controversial nuclear plant under
construction at Mochovce. But after the meeting, Meciar told reporters
that Slovak Economy Minister Jan Ducky had left for Moscow to discuss a
Russian offer to help finance Mochovce, AFP reported. According to
Narodna obroda on 7 July, the German firm Bayernwerk has already pulled
out of the project. -- Sharon Fisher, OMRI, Inc.

CHINESE PRESIDENT IN HUNGARY. Jiang Zemin arrived in Hungary on 8 July
for a three-day official visit, Hungarian media reported. Jiang told MTI
the next day that the main aims of his visit were to develop "further
economic and cultural links between the two countries." Jiang is to meet
with Hungarian President Arpad Goncz and Prime Minister Gyula Horn on 10
July. Reuters reported that the Hungarian government hopes to persuade
China to buy more Hungarian goods and to increase investment in Hungary.
Hungary has a growing trade deficit with China, which it hopes to
reverse. -- Jiri Pehe, OMRI, Inc.

ROMANIAN PRESIDENT REBUKES HUNGARIAN MINORITY PARTY. Ion Iliescu on 8
July told a delegation from the Hungarian Democratic Federation of
Romania (UDMR) that he sees no reason why he should not promulgate the
law on education recently passed by the parliament. But he said he will
wait until the Constitutional Court rules on the matter. The UDMR asked
the court to declare the law unconstitutional and demanded that Iliescu
refuse to promulgate it. Radio Bucharest quoted Iliescu as saying the
UDMR's threats to stage demonstrations and boycott schools were
"politically dangerous" and could "encourage extremism," leading to a
repetition of the 1990 inter-ethnic clashes in Targu Mures. Gheorghe
Funar, leader of the extreme nationalist Party of Romanian National
Unity, published an open letter to Iliescu in Cronica romana on 8 July
saying the rights granted to the Hungarian minority under the education
law would "legislate segregationism" in education and promote the
"Magyarization of Romanians" in counties where Hungarians form the
majority. -- Michael Shafir, OMRI, Inc.

**BUDAPEST EXPECTED TO TREAD SOFTLY ON CHINESE HUMAN RIGHTS POLICY**
  President Jiang Zemin of China arrived in Budapest Saturday for
  a three-day visit.  Jiang told reporters that the main aim of
  his visit was to increase business and cultural ties with
  Hungary.  Yesterday he visited the baroque Festetics castle in
  central Hungary and will meet Hungarian President Arpad Goncz
  and Prime Minister Gyula Horn today.  The Hungarian government
  hopes to persuade China to buy more Hungarian goods and
  increase its investments in the country, but is expected to
  skirt around the sensitive topic of China's human rights
  record.  The Chinese president, who spent four days in Poland
  before coming to Budapest, leaves for Germany tomorrow.
