Maniu Receives Keren Hayesod Delegate; Will Issue Pro-Palestine Declaration (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

National and religious minorities in Roumania were assured “fair and just treatment” in the message of the Regency Council read by Member of the Regency Nicolai, at the opening of the newly-elected parliament.

The spirit of justice is inherent in the Roumanian people, the message stated. The religious and national minorities will receive fair treatment within the provisions of the Roumanian constitution and in accordance with the trend of the times.
