Rumania Seeks International Parley on Jewish Emigration

Rumania’s delegation to the League of Nations, after being in telephonic communication with Bucharest, stated today that the new rumanian decree placing denaturalized Jews under the laws governing foreigners did not mean they would have to leave the country after three months, for residential permits would probably be renewed quarterly until the citizenship revision was completed.

The denationalized Jews will not be deported since no country is willing to accept them, a spokesman declared, and in view of this situation the Rumanian government, in collaboration with other governments, is seeking means to solve the Jewish problem through the opening of certain territories to immigration of rumanian and other Jews.

The delegation is actively approaching others, seeking support for a move to induce the League to convene an intergovernmental conference devoted exclusively to the Jewish question.
