  • Description

    SPECIAL AMERICAN ENVOY, CHESTER, BOWLES, RETURNED TO NEW DELHI FROM CAMBODIA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). HE DESCRIBED HIS TALKS WITH PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE, AS MOST CORDIAL AND SAID HE BELIEVED THE TALKS HAD MADE AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARDS SAFEGUARDING CAMBODIAN NEUTRALITY.

    MR. BOWLES WAS SENT TO PHNOM PENH IN CAMBODIA, TO GIVE PRINCE SIHANOUK NEW ASSURANCES ABOUT AMERICAN POLICY.

    THESE ASSURANCES BECAME NECESSARY FOLLOWING REPORTED REQUESTS BY U.S. MILITARY COMMANDERS IN VIETNAM TO BE GIVEN THE RIGHT TO PURSUE VIET CONG TROOPS ACROSS THE CAMBODIAN BORDER.

    PRINCE SIHANOUK HAS FREQUENTLY EXPRESSED HIS OPPOSITION TO ANY AMERICAN RIGHT OF PURSUIT AND HAS INSISTED THAT THE WARRING PARTIES IN VIETNAM MUST RESPECT CAMBODIA'S NEUTRALITY IN THE CONFLICT.

    MR. BOWLES MADE A STATEMENT TO REPORTERS IN NEW DELHI, SHORTLY AFTER HIS RETURN.
