BUCHAREST, Romania  — Romania's anti-discrimination board has ruled that the country's foreign minister was guilty of discriminatory remarks about the Roma, or Gypsy population.

The board's chairman Csaba Astalosz said Friday the minister will receive the mildest sanction, a recommendation, and not a warning or a fine.

In February, Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi said "we have some physiological, natural problems of criminality among some of the Romanian communities" in France, "especially among the Roma."
