(U)

Representative LANTOS advised that since the departure of former Hungarian Ambassador FERENC ESZTERGALYOS, neither he nor his staff has had contact ''lith any Hungarian Embassy (HUEMB) staff member. He found this situation inexplicable given his former. regular HUEMB contact and the facj:~hat he is the only member of Congress wi,th a Hungarian background. H~ felt that surely the new Hungarian .~bassador, JANOS PETRAN, wouldl1aye been eager to maintain close contact with hini. LANTOS indica.tedt:.l1Cit he llould probably initiate contact ,dth PETRAN sometime in the future, if only to satisfy his curiousity about the man. ()
