    Background: The Hungarian Prime Minister, Gyoergy Lazar held talks with Iraq's President Ahmed Hassan Al-Bakr on Monday (3 October).

    SYNOPSIS: The two leaders held their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Baghdad. The Hungarian Prime Minister had arrived in Baghdad two days earlier. Before this meeting with President Ahmed Hassan Al-Bakr, he had already spent part of the previous day holding talks with the Vice-President of Iraq's Revolutionary Command Council on strengthening the relations between Iraq and Hungary. The meeting at the Royal Palace began formally as the Iraqi President welcomed Mr. Lazar and his accompanying delegation. Senior Iraqi government officials, including the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs at the Foreign Ministry attended the meeting. Mr. Lazar delivered greetings from Hungary's President and his best wishes to the Iraqi people.

    No official communique was released after their meeting, but it is reported that the situation in the Middle East was one of the major topics the two leaders discussed. Iraq has rejected the United States-Soviet declaration on the Middle East. It does not recognise Israel.
