HUNGARY WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN GROUND ATTACKS AGAINST
YUGOSLAVIA. Leaders of all six parliamentary parties in
Hungary agreed on 21 April that Budapest will not
participate in the possible launching of NATO ground
attacks on Yugoslavia, Hungarian media reported. Foreign
Minister Janos Martonyi said it is unlikely that any
decision taken at the forthcoming NATO summit would make
Hungary change its stand. Prime Minister Viktor Orban
told journalists that so far Hungary has received no
request to allow NATO trains carrying ammunition and
technical equipment to transit the country. MSZ
