  • Description

    President Nicolae Ceausescu of Rumania called a state conference on Thursday (August 19) between the Rumanian Communist party's Central Committee, the State Council, and the Council of Ministers. It was held following earlier talks between President Ceausescu and the Soviet Ambassador in Bucharest, when the two men discussed economic matters within the Soviet bloc. Thursday's state conference, according to the official Rumanian press Agency, dealt with similar topics, including the conflict between Rumanian policy ad the recent economic integration plan put forward by COMECON, the Eastern European Common Market.

    SYNOPSIS: President Ceausescu of Rumania called an official state meeting on Thursday, of the top three administrative bodies in the nation. The conference followed a meeting last week between President Ceausescu and the Soviet Ambassador in Bucharest. The conference was called to endorse President Ceausescu's stand against certain aspects of an economic integration plan put forward recently by Comecon, the Eastern European common market.

    Rumanian interpretations of the Comecon summit pact include some major points which appear to conflict with Soviet integration policy.

    Meanwhile, Soviet Party leader brezhnev is to meet with President Tito of Yugoslavia next month, and news reports say that they will discuss tension in the Balkans which has risen over Warsaw Pact manoeuvres. Rumania has been critical of military exercises, both western and eastern, and has not permitted the manoeuvres on her territory since 1962.
