RFE/RL NEWSLINE Vol 2, No. 190, 1 October 1998

U.S., EU ON SLOVAK ELECTION RESULTS. Commenting that the
recent Slovak elections reflect "a clear desire" for change,
State Department Spokesman James Foley on 30 September urged
all concerned to make the transfer of power "orderly and
expeditious," an RFE/RL correspondent in Washington reported.
Also on 30 September, European Commission spokeswoman
Lousewies van der Laan said the commission is "pleased" with
the strong showing by the opposition in the recent elections
but cannot reward Slovakia by accelerating talks for its
membership in the EU. Van der Laan said that the commission
"will be looking for concrete steps from Slovakia to improve
its human rights record," and she singled out Hungarian
minority rights as well as general democratic rights. MS

CORRECTION: "RFE/RL Newsline" of 30 September incorrectly
identified Jan Langos as deputy chairman of the Party of the
Democratic Left. Langos is the former chairman of the
Democratic Party and currently deputy chairman of the Slovak
Democratic Coalition.

HUNGARIAN FOREIGN MINISTER ENDS U.S. VISIT. "Hungary is not
seeking to bring forward the date of NATO expansion but
welcomes all moves that point in that direction," Janos
Martonyi told Hungarian media on 30 September after returning
from New York. He said he agreed with U.S. Under Secretary of
State Strobe Talbott that "the normal pace of events" will be
followed in NATO expansion, which, he added, is "more of a
technical issue than a political one." Martonyi also welcomed
the outcome of the Slovak election, saying that if the
opposition succeeds in setting up a new government, it will
be "a decisive development" both domestically and for
Slovakia's Euro-Atlantic integration. MSZ

ROMANIAN GOVERNMENT OFFERS COMPROMISE TO ETHNIC HUNGARIAN
PARTY. The government on 30 September announced it will set
up a "multicultural" university with tuition in Hungarian and
German, RFE/RL's Bucharest bureau reported. The new
university is to be named "Petofi-Schiller" and supervised by
the Ministry of Education. Bela Marko, chairman of the
Hungarian Democratic Federation of Romania (UDMR), said the
decision shows the government's "intention to solve the
crisis." The UDMR's Operative Council said later that the
party's Council of Representatives will decide at its 5
October meeting whether to accept the compromise offer. The
council had earlier announced that the party will leave the
coalition if the university dispute is not solved by 30
September. MS
