Background: PM Begin returned this morning from an official visit to Rumania on which he departed last Thursday morning. In the course of this visit he had a meeting with Rumania's PM Manescu and two very extended visits with Rumania's President and party boss Ceuscesco. Whilst the visit started off in an atmosphere of collision of different views, especially on the question of the PLO as representative of the Palestinians, no doubt Mr. Begin succeeded in changing this atmosphere into one, in which differences of opinion were agreed not to impair the friendship of the two countries. Mr. Begin also invited the rumanian president to visit Israel. Upon his return Mr. Begin and his party were greeted by friends and family and Mr. Begin then spoke to reporters at the airport.
