The Cambodian dilemma

The editorial "Time to Be Counted on Cambodia," April 1, names three foreign players (China, the United States, and Japan) that the writer feels should lead efforts toward forcing the Khmer Rouge to honor the provisions of the October peace treaty and, in addition, accept a cease-fire agreement.

The editorial fails to mention the fact that the forces of the current Phnom Penh government are still part of the Vietnamese puppet regime installed by an army of occupation in 1979; they, along with their supporters in Hanoi, will also have to be diplomatically pressured by the US, China, Japan, and the countries of ASEAN if there is ever going to be a peaceful settlement to the Cambodian dilemma.
