Romanian and Soviet host call for more cooperation

A visit to Moscow by the Kremlin's most wayward ally, Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu, ended Wednesday with a call for greater bilateral cooperation.

A communique carried by the official Romanian news agency, Agerpres, indicated that Mr. Ceausescu had overcome some differences with Soviet President Konstantin Chernenko and adopted a softer position on several important issues. One of the disagreements ironed out was over economic policy, which had last year caused the collapse of a planned meeting of Comecon, the Soviet-bloc economic alliance.

The communique said the meeting took place ''in an atmosphere of warm friendship and sincerity,'' in an indication that the talks had been reasonably friendly while some differences were expressed.
