****************** CALL FOR ACTION ****************
The simultaneous integration of Romania and Hungary into NATO is in
the best interest of our Transylvanian Hungarian brethren, of the
region, and of our peoples and countries. This is also recognized by
the RMDSZ and by Hungarian politicians of the government as well as of
Unfortunately, Romania is rarely mentioned when Western politicians
talk about NATO expansion. Members of the Romanian Lobby, who formed
an organization under the name of "Diaspora Romana" will forward
documents sustaining Romania's integration into NATO in the first
wave to selected members of the American Congress on Capitol Hill, on
June 10th,1997.They asked for our help in supporting them.
Now we have to act URGENTLY.
What to do:
Please sign the following document in which are stated that we,
members of the Hungarian Lobby support Romania's integration into
the NATO. You may do that by sending a message/reply to this document
with Your name, and address (city,state,country) to Peter Orban:
The names and addresses will be totalized under a letter-document and
forwarded to the Diaspora Romana by Friday,June 6,1997.

Members of the Hungarian Lobby are deeply interested in the
future of East-Central Europe, and recognize the need for simultaneous
integration of the countries of the region into NATO. This would
stabilize the whole region and assure the orderly transition toward
democracy and market economy, without the turmoil seen in the former
Romania, a country of 23 milion people, with affinity toward western
culture, at the same time represents the best potential base of
stability in the Balkans.
Romania's ongoing political democratization and reorganization of all
central and local governmental institutions, the inclusion of the
large Hungarian minority in the government, and the expected
subsequent satisfaction of legitimate minority claims are -- and may
become -- positive examples for the countries of the region.
A look at the map of Europe shows Romania to be the gateway to the
East. Only through this gateway will it be possible to access the
heart of Europe, and the key that will allow this gateway to stay open
-- and to defend it effectively at the same time -- is NATO membership
With an important economic potential due to a large and fertile
agricultural area, her metallurgical and defense industries ready to
produce for her allies, possessing the biggest maritime port in
Eastern Europe, with a multiethnic population and large urban
comunities, Romania is just as much an important future partner and
ally of the European Community and of NATO as are Poland, the Czech
Republic, and Hungary.
For all the above considerations, members of the Hungarian Lobby,who
during the last six months learned, along the the members of Diaspora
Romana, to cooperate in promoting the cause of democratic
transformation oin Eastern-Central Europe,support the inclusion of
Romania, along with Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland, among the
first group of countries to be integrated into NATO.

|+ - ||European Elections and Hungary (mind)
A couple of weeks ago the Labour party was elected in Great Britain and
yesterday the Socialists were elected in France. Hungary is moving toward
the political right and integration with Europe, while Western Europe
appears to be moving to the political left.
Is there a Hungarian 'spin' on these developments?
