  • Description

    Communist prime Ministers began talks on closer economic alignment on Tuesday (24 June) in Budapest, Hungary, where the annual Comecon summit is underway. The nine-nation Council of Mutual Economic Assistance (Comecon) is meeting to set the Communist block countries' course over the next five years.

    Problems of energy and raw materials are high on the agenda. The price of Soviet oil has increased sharply since Comecon last met and this has worsened the trading terms of the bloc's smaller members.

    Ministers responsible for energy were included in most of the eight visiting delegations. Soviet premier Alexei Kosygin led a strong delegation from Moscow, including three Deputy Prime Ministers and five departmental Ministers. Also present at the three-day meeting are the Prime Ministers of Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Mongolia, poland and Rumania. Cuba sent a Deputy Prime Minister. Yugoslavia, an associate member, is also represented by a Deputy prime Minister.

    On the opening day, the Hungarian prime Minister Gyoargy Lazer called for faster progress in implementing the economic integration programme launched in 1971 by Comecon.
