Premier Karoly Grosz will meet Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu on Sunday, apparently to discuss a plan to raze villages in Romania, official media said Friday.
The terse report over Hungarian radio did not contain any details, but it was clear that Ceausescu's plan to destroy 7,000 of Romania's 13,000 villages will be the main topic of their discussions in Arad, Romania.Hungarians have complained that the move will wipe out hundreds of ethnic Hungarian communities.
The two leaders will hold "a working meeting . . . on the basis of a mutual agreement," the report said.
The visit appears to have been arranged following a Hungarian initiative to defuse a deepening crisis between the Warsaw Pact allies over the plan to raze the villages and resettle the tens of thousands of residents.
