Hungary's ambassador in Bucharest, Pal Szuts, met with Romanian Prime Minister Petre Roman and disputed a Romanian statement accusing Budapest of inciting ethnic clashes that killed several people in Romania's Transylvania province last week, a Hungarian diplomat said. An official Romanian statement said Roman had urged Hungary "not to complicate the situation through declarations that give Romanians in Transylvania the feeling that they are endangered." After a Cabinet meeting, the Romanian government said it would issue new rules quickly to reorganize the teaching of Hungarian, which the Hungarian minority had demanded.
