RESOLUTION                                           
                                                                                
     CONCERNING THE PROBLEMS OF THE INHABITANTS OF ESTONIA,                     
           LATVIA AND LITHUANIA LIVING IN BORDER AREAS                          
                                                                                
     In border towns and regions of the Baltic States people used               
to live in the same rhythm which various powers tried to break at               
different times.  Such activities  often were in contradiction to               
the everyday interests of the people.                                           
     Unsettled problems  such as  the legal  procedure of  border               
crossing  are  difficulties  causing  the  greatest  tension  and               
incomprehension among the local population.                                     
     The Baltic  Assembly  proposes  to  the  Baltic  Council  of               
Ministers that  they urgently  find solutions, through interstate               
negotiations, for such border areas and border towns.
