    THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE, PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, AND HIS WIFE, PRINCESS MONIQUE, TODAY (TUESDAY) HAD A ONE HOUR MEETING WITH PRESIDENT AND MADAMEDE GAULLE AT THE ELYSEE PALACE IN PARIS.

    THE DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN THE PRINCE AND PRESIDENT DE GAULLE HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED AS A TETE A TETE, BUT VIETNAM IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MAJOR TOPICS.

    LATER, AT A LUNCHEON, PRESIDENT DE GAULLE SAID THE VIETNAM CONFLICT COULD ONLY BE SOLVED BY ENDING FOREIGN INTERVENTION AND GETTING THE PARTIES INVOLVED TO ACCEPT THE RIGHT OF THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE TO SELF DETERMINATION. HE SAID FRANCE AND CAMBODIA HAD A COMMON CONDEMNATION OF THE CONFLICT.

    REPLYING, PRINCE SIHANOUK SAID HE BELIEVED ALL COUNTRIES INVOLVED IN THE VIETNAM AFFAIRS COULD RECOGNISE THE NOBILITY OF THE FRENCH POSITION TOWARD THE CONFLICT.

    THE TWO LEADERS WERE HAVING THEIR FIRST MEETING SINCE PRESIDENT DE GAULLE VISITED CAMBODIA IN SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR. PRINCE SIHANOUK IS ON A PRIVATE VISIT TO FRANCE. HIS MEETING WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE WAS AN INFORMAL OCCASION.
