  • Description

    THE 10TH RUMANIAN COMMUNIST PARTY CONFERENCE CLOSED IN BUCHAREST YESTERDAY WITH PRESIDENT NICHOLAE CEAUSESCU BEING UNANIMOUSLY ENDORSED AS PARTY LEADER. DECISIONS TAKEN BY THE CONGRESS, DECISIONS HOLDING FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, MEAN THAT RUMANIA WILL PLAY A PIVOTAL ROLE AS A MAJOR OBSTACLE TO THE SOVIET POLICIES OF TIGHT CONSOLIDATION IN EASTERN EUROPE.

    AT 51, PRESIDENT CEAUSESCU IS THE YOUNGEST HEAD OF STATE AND PARTY LEADER IN THE EASTERN EUROPEAN "BLOCK". HE RECEIVED A NUMBER OF STANDING OVATIONS FROM DELEGATIONS TO THE CONGRESS, AND LATER MOVED TO THE BALCONY ON THE ONE-TIME ROYAL PALACE, TO RECEIVE THE ACCLAIM OF CHANTING CROWDS.

    AMONG A NUMBER OF MAJOR DECISIONS TAKEN BY THE CONGRESS WAS ONE WHICH MADE IT CLEAR THAT WHILE RUMANIA PLEDGES CONTINUED LOYALTY TO THE WARSAW PACT DEFENCE ORGANISATION, SHE WILL GO AHEAD WITH MEASURES TO PROVIDE FOR HER DEFENCE.
