    CAMBODIANS GAVE ROUSING WELCOME WHEN PRINCE SIHANOUK ARRIVED TO INAUGURATE THE ULTRA-MODERN HOSPITAL BUILT ABOUT 43 MILES (70 KILOMETRES) FROM PHNOM PENH, THE CAMBODIAN CAPITAL.WITH THE LOCALS WERE THE AMBASSADORS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA - BOTH OF WHOM HAVE PROMISED ECONOMIC AID TO CAMBODIA IN THE FUTURE.

    LAST WEEKEND, THE PRINCE SAID THAT CAMBODIA WAS CLOSING ITS LONDON AND WASHINGTON EMBASSIES.THIS RESULTED FROM THE GOVERNMENT CLAIM THAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES HAD PROTESTED AGAINST ALLEGED CAMBODIAN OPPOSITION TO THE LATE PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S POLICIES.THE PRINCE IS NOW BELIEVED TO HAVE BECOME IMPATIENT OVER THE DELAY IN ACCEDING TO HIS REQUEST BY THE BRITISH AND SOVIET CO-CHAIRMAN OF THE GENEVA CONFERENCE FOR THE HOLDING OF A NINE-NATION CONFERENCE ON CAMBODIAN NEUTRALITY.
