Foreign ministers of 24 of the world's richest nations are expected to expand their program of economic aid for the democratizing regimes of eastern Europe during a meeting on Wednesday. Originally, the so-called Group of 24--including the nations of Western Europe plus Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, and the United States--planned to assist only Hungary and Poland. But now Czechoslovakia almost certainly will be added to the list, and Romania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia may also get help.

The 24 industrial nations responsible for aid to Eastern Europe excluded Yugoslavia from the list of eligible recipients Monday but admitted Albania and the new Baltic nations, and many of the 24 criticized the United States for not shouldering a fair share of the donations. The United States has pledged less than 8% of the roughly $32 billion committed by the 24 nations. That contrasts with 81% from Western Europe and more than 30% from Germany alone.

Austrian Chancellor Franz Vranitzky said Monday that the "wait and see" posture some Western governments are taking toward economic assistance for Eastern Europe is "a wrong attitude." "If we in the West just wait and see," the former Communist nations in the East "will not succeed in building solid economic foundations for their ambitious political goals" for democracy, Vranitzky said in an interview during a four-day visit to Los Angeles.
