    Background: INTRODUCTION: The Young Communist League in Hungary has been holding its tenth congress. Nearly 400 delegates representing more than 300,000 members met in Budapest on Friday (29 May) for three days of discussions, and were joined by Hungarian Prime Minister Gyorgy Lazar, as well as representatives from youth organisations from more than 40 countries.

    SYNOPSIS: The representatives at the congress, held every five years, gathered on Friday (29 May) to hear an address from Janos Kadar, first secretary of the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party.

    Mr. Kadar made what many saw as a clear reference to the continuing instability in Poland, when he said there were many methods of distribution, but production had to come first.

    The Hungarian leader included the West in his attacks. Mr. Kadar said Western imperialism was conducting activities against the Communist system in Poland. He criticised President Reagan for his recent stated intention to negotiate with the Soviet Union from a position of strength. Mr. Kadar said that, sooner or later, the United States would have to talk on the basis of equality. He also accused the West of waging an undeclared the war against Afghanistan.
