HUNGARIAN POLITICIANS ON TRIANON TREATY. In an interview
with "Nepszava" published on 10 November, Independent
Smallholder deputy Sandor Kavassy argued that efforts should
continue to amend the 1920 Trianon peace treaty. Kavassy, who is to
replace Agnes Nagy Maczo as deputy parliamentary chairman, said
"ethnic borders and political borders must be brought into harmony
sooner or later." Asked whether the re-negotiation of the Trianon
treaty should be raised after Hungary joins NATO, Viktor Orban, who
is chairman of the Alliance of Young Democrats-Hungarian Civic
Party, told an opposition forum two days earlier that "there would be
nobody to sit down with for such talks." Orban recalled late Prime
Minister Jozsef Antall as saying Trianon is "something one should
always think about but never talk about." MSZ
