RESOLUTION

Commending the Governments of Hungary and Romania on the occasion of the signing of a Treaty of Understanding, Cooperation, and Good Neighborliness.

Whereas on September 16, 1996, a ‘Treaty of Understanding, Cooperation, and Good Neighborliness between Romania and the Republic of Hungary’ was signed by Gyula Horn, Prime Minister of Hungary, and by Nicolae Vacaroiu, Prime Minister of Romania, in Timisoara/Temesvar, Romania;

Whereas this agreement between the two governments is an important step in contributing to the stability of that region and to reconciliation and cooperation among the nations of Central and Eastern Europe;

Whereas this agreement will enhance the participation of both countries in the Partnership for Peace program and will contribute to and facilitate their closer cooperation with the members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the eventual entry of these countries into full NATO participation; and

Whereas this agreement is a further significant step in the process of reconciliation between Hungary and Romania and reflects the desire and effort of both countries to improve their economic cooperation, to foster the free movement of peoples between their countries, to expand military relationships, and to increase cultural and educational cooperation: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate, The Senate--

      (1) commends the farsighted leadership shown by both the government of Hungary and the government of Romania in reaching agreement on the Treaty of Understanding, Cooperation and Good Neighborliness signed on September 16, 1996;

      (2) commends the frank, open, and reasoned political dialogue between officials of Hungary and Romania which led to the treaty;

      (3) commends the two countries for their efforts to foster improved relations in all fields; and
