    Background: Vietnamese Foreign Minister Nguyen Co Thach said Vietnam was not agreeable to the call by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for withdrawal of Vietnamese forces from Kampuchea to pave the way for a political solution.

    He made it clear to reporters after inconclusive talks with his Malaysian counterpart Tengku Ahmad Rithauddeen.

    Mr. Thach arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (8 May) for a five-day official visit to discuss peaceful settlement of the Kampuchea crisis with Malaysian leaders.

    He was greeted at the International airport by Tengku Rithauddeen.

    Speaking to reporters on arrival, Mr. Thach said Vietnamese forces in Kampuchea would return to their country when the threat from China to Indochina countries disappeared.

    He said it was now the third time that Vietnamese forces had gone into Kampuchea. First time during the war in Indochina gainst France and the troops were pulled back to Vietnamese when the war was over.

    Vietnamese forces went back again to Kampuchea in the war against the United States and they left the country when the hostilities ended in 1975.

    "This time we are in Kampuchea because of the threat of China," he said.
