PRAGUE (Reuter) - The prime ministers of Czechoslovakia's two divided parts said they had agreed on how to split the country peacefully. Vaclav Klaus, the Czech leader, and Vladimir Meciar, his Slovak counterpart, said they would ask parliament to pass a law to wind up the Czechoslovak federation by 30 September. They proposed a customs union and free-trade zone with free movement of labour, money and capital but could not agree on a single currency.
