Polish leader Wojciech Jaruzelski urged Solidarity union leaders freed from prison under an amnesty program to work with the government for national reconciliation. Lech Walesa, Solidarity founder, said he approved of the plan on the condition that the government open talks with the now-outlawed trade union. Jaruzelski, in a speech, made no mention of talks with Solidarity leaders but declared that the government's amnesty program has created conditions for reconciliation. "Strenuous work is needed . . . for the favorable future of our homeland," he added.
