    TIRANA, NOV 17 (ATA) - Secretary of State at the Foreign Ministry of the Netherlands Patijn expressed on Monday in the Hague his sympathy to the Albanian Foreign Ministry Paskal Milo for the progress of the Albanian government.

    Patijn said that "together with other European colleagues appreciated the achievements of the Nano government in this short period. The engagement and seriousness to face the challenges due to the situation in Albania are the best guarantee to adopt the appropriate course for Albania's development."

    He said that Nano government deserves the Netherland's support in the framework of unprejudiced support for all those governments, which observe the rules of democracy and especially respect the human rights.

    Referring to Albania's situation, he added "the political parties should assume responsibility for the construction of the country and the cooperation should start from the parliament to the local government bodies."

    Milo acquainted the guest with the efforts of the government to restore order, reach a wide political consensus, national reconciliation and constructive cooperation with the opposition on the drafting of a constitution.

    They also focused on problems in the Balkans and Albania's relations with its neighbours especially with Former Republic of Yugoslavia.

    Milo said that we would like to solve the regional problems through dialogue.

    Patijn described Albania's stand towards neighbours and especially former Yugoslavia as realistic and in the interest of Albanians wherever they are.

    He reiterated Holland's position on exerting pressure against Belgrade to respect the rights of Albanians living in Kosova.

    Patijn said that Holland will carry out the programs of cooperation for Albania's development and favours their promotion.

    During his stay in the Hague, Milo attended an oath ceremony of new lawyers to the Court on war crimes in former Yugoslavia. ake/kei/ak/sh/

    [02] CONFERENCE REQUESTING WAGE RAISE

    TIRANE, NOV.17 (ATA)-By D. Kaloshi, In order to prevent further deterioration of the living standard in Albania efforts should be made to prevent the real wage from declining and raise it instead.

    Official estimation of the minimum living standard and its publication by the government or INSTAT, also including in this process representatives of employers and employees as well as their specialists, was one of the most disputable issues at the National Conference "Three-parties and negotiable policy of wages", held in Tirane, yesterday.

    The participants in the conference discussed a separation of social categories and pensions from the minimal wage, also including social benefits and pensions.

    The three-party wage commission, one of the national labour council, should be the very forum in which the government representatives, employers and employees draft the wage reform and realise three-party agreements on income policy.

    This will encourage not only the increase of the wages that do not raise inflation and are based on the concrete augmentation of production and other economic results. kei/lm/sh/

    [06] LA CONFERENCE POUR LA POLITIQUE DES SALAIRES EXPRIME LA NECESSITE DE L'AUGMENTATION DES SALAIRES

    Tirana, 17 novembre/ATA-Driola Kaloshi/ Pour empêcher la détérioration du standard de vie en Albanie, il faut interrompre la réduction du salaire réel et faire des efforts pour son augmentation, ont souligné lundi les participants à la conférence nationale "Le tripartisme et la politique négociable des salaires", à Tirana.

    L'un des points les plus discutés lors de cette conférence était le calcul officiel du minimum de vie et sa publication par le gouvernement ou par l'INSTAT, en comprenant dans ce processus les représentrants des employeurs et des employés ainsi que leurs spécialistes.

    Dans une période à moyen terme, a-t-il été dit lors de la conférence, le gouvernement en coopération avec les partenaires sociaux doivent prévoir une augmentation progressive du salaire minimum en proportion avec le minimun vital.

    L'o a discuté d'un détachement des catégories sociales et des pensions du salaire minimun, y comris aussi l'assistance pour le chômage et les pensions de retraite.

    La commission tripartite des salaires, qui est une des commissions du Conseil national du travail, doit être le forum convenable où les représentants du gouvernement, les employeyrs et les employés élaborent la plateforme des salaires et réalisent un accord tripartite pour la politique des revenus.

    Cela fera en sorte que soient encouragées les augmentations de salaires qui n'accroissent pas l'inflation et sont appuyés sur l'augmentation concrète de la production et des autres résultats économiques./kei- tt

    [10] STRIKE OF ALBANIAN PRESS CONTINUES

    TIRANE, NOV 18 (ATA) - By Aurel Simoni: Also on Tuesday no Albanian papers appeared except Zeri i Popullit and Rilindja, as a result of a strike the publishers of nine dailies have been staging since last Sunday.

    The government representatives have fulfilled only one of the five requests the strikers has presented in the meeting last Monday evening in which the State Minister close to the Prime Minister, Kastriot Islami and Finance Minister Arben Malaj took part.

    Attending the meeting as representatives of the Parliament were the chairman of the Parliamentary Commission of Economy, Anastas Angjeli, the chairman of the Media Commission, Musa Ulqini, whereas the publishers were represented by the members of the strike commission, the editor-in-chief of Republika, Dalip Greca, the director of Albania, Ylli Rakipi and the director of Dita Information, Shpetim Nazarko.

    Both sides considered the meeting as "transitional" since they had agreed only on the fact that the Government and reporters must call on the international community to give a part of the assistance for Albania to the press in this country.

    "The press is in a financial crisis," strike commission representatives told a news conference on Monday, "as a result of the crisis of this year, the increase of prices, etc."

    The strikers' representatives explained that the strike has only economic character and that it is neither against the Government nor in favour of the Democratic party, opposing in this way the DP chairman who had called the strike "political" a day before.

    Today publishers have been worried that their strike is being exploited by the Democratic Party in its struggle against the government of Fatos Nano.

    The four other requests of the strikers could not meet the consensus by the Government.

    Musa Ulqini considered the Monday meeting as "constructive."

    "The other meeting to be held tomorrow will reach a solution, since both sides are trying to reach a compromise, also by making mutual concessions," said Ulqini with regard to the meeting which will also be attended by deputy Prime Minister Bashkim Fino. ake/kei/xh/k
