Anti-Vietnamese coalition for Cambodia wins favor
Bangkok, Thailand — Singapore, backed by Thailand, has proposed a loose coalition government of Cambodia's three rival resistance groups to bolster negotiations for a united anti-Vietnamese front.
The proposed government would comprise a head of state, a prime minister and deputy prime minister, and three ministers representing each of the groups. Two of the three anti-Communist resistance groups holding talks here on the possibility of a coalition have conditionally accepted the proposal, a Singapore official says. But the powerful Khmer Rouge government wants to study the plan and would give its response within two months, he said.
