CONTROVERSY AROUND HUNGARIAN-SLOVAK TREATY, GABCIKOVO DAM. The
leaders of two Magyar ethnic parties in Slovakia, Coexistence and
the Hungarian Christian Democratic Movement, said that they were
not consulted on the Slovak draft of the state treaty with Hungary
forwarded on 22 July by Bratislava to Budapest. The ethnic leaders
fear that Hungarian Premier Gyula Horn may hastily sign a treaty
with Slovakia during his 5 August visit to Bratislava. Horn's
declared intention to possibly revise Hungary's position on the
Gabcikovo dam, another contentious issue with Slovakia, has
aroused protests from Hungary's opposition parties and ecological
movements, such as the Danube Circle, which are calling for the
maintenance of the status quo and oppose any withdrawal of
Hungary's suit filed with the International Court of Justice at
the Hague, MTI and Magyar Hirlap reported on 26 July. Alfred

HORN MEETS WITH EUROPEAN UNION AMBASSADORS. At a 26 July meeting
with the ambassadors of the EU countries in Hungary, Premier Horn
said full EU membership remained his country's strategic aim, with
the relevant talks starting in 1996 or early 1997 at the latest,
MTI announced. According to Horn, Hungary does not want to
re-negotiate its association treaty with the EU but to exploit the
possibilities it offers to the fullest. The envoys welcomed
Budapest's desire to sign state treaties with Slovakia and
Romania, with Horn saying that those treaties should guarantee
both the inviolability of borders and the rights of national
minorities. Alfred Reisch, RFE/RL Inc.

ELIE WIESEL IN ROMANIA. Radio Bucharest and Romanian television
announced on 25 July that Nobel prize winner Elie Wiesel, who is
of Romanian-Hungarian Jewish origin, arrived to the northwestern
town of Baia Mare. At the airport he was received by presidential
spokesman Traian Chebeleu and local officials. Wiesel, whose works
on the Jewish Holocaust have been translated in many languages,
was harshly criticized by the Romanian ultra-nationalists after
his denunciations of inter-war Romanian anti-semitism and Marshal
Ion Antonescu. The presence of Chebeleu at the reception ceremony
seems to indicate that the authorities are now attempting to
soothe the writer. Wiesel will participate in ceremonies marking
the 50th anniversary of the deportation of Transylvanian Jewry to
extermination camps by the Hungarians and the Nazis. He will also
shoot a documentary on his life.  Michael Shafir, RFE/RL Inc.
