Waldheim sees progress in Kampuchea peace plan

After three hours of talks with Vietnamese Foreign minister Nguyen Co Thach, UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim reported progress Sunday in reconciling proposals by the Indo- China states and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations aimed at resolving the Kampuchean crisis.

Both sides feel a demilitarized zone will reduce tensions between Vietnamese-occupied Kampuchea and Thailand, but disagree on where the zone should be located.

Mr. Waldheim was invited by both Hanoi and Bangkok to discuss the Kampuchean situation, which deteriorated seriously after a brief Vietnamese military incursion into Thai territory early last month.
