  • [01] Senate speaker's press conference in Arad

    The speaker of the Romanian Senate, Petre Roman, said that since Hungary was accepted as NATO member, the rejection of Romania's candidacy was a mistake. While in Arada on Suday, the leader of the Democratic party (PD) has told a press conference that he hoped the Hungarian Government would not change the policy the country's former prime minister Gyula Horn has been promoting. Mr Roman said that, as far as the setting up of a Hungarian language teaching university was concerned, no agreement was reached over the issue. On the other hand, the PD leader said that emergency measures should be taken for a 45% raise in the custom duties on wheat and flour imports. Refering to the fact that the Arad leadership of the Christian Democrat National Peasant Party (PNTCD) has denied the Transport Minister Traian Basescu the access in the county of Arad, Mr Roman has warned that such a political diversion might become a source of tensions.
