  • Description

    Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew on Wednesday (23 April) said the Southeast Asian nations should tackle the Communist threat to the area by providing enough economic progress and social justice to make insurgency unattractive.

    Mr. Lee had arrived unexpectedly in Bangkok the previous day for talks with Thai leaders.

    He told a news conference that the long-term solution to the region's problems was increased solidarity between the five member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).

    He said in this way Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines could ensure continued stability and uninterrupted economic development in the area.

    All five ASEAN members have recognised the new Phnom Penh Government.
