  • Description

    THE DEPOSED LEADER OF CAMBODIA, PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, HAS ARRIVED IN PEKING FROM MOSCOW FOR TALKS WITH LEADERS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. THE PRINCE DECIDED TO CONTINUE HIS TOUR DESPITE THE EVENTS AT HOME.

    PRINCE SIHANOUK WAS IN MOSCOW TO GAIN SUPPORT FROM THE KREMLIN IN HIS FIGHT TO HAVE CAMBODIA RECOGNISED AS NEUTRAL. THE COUP IN CAMBODIA HOWEVER, CAUSED SERIOUS RETHINKING. JUST WHERE THE PRINCE STANDS NOW IN TALKING ON BEHALF OF HIS COUNTRY IS IN DOUBT. HOWEVER, IT WAS SIGNIFICANT THAT THE NEW CHINA NEWS AGENCY REPORTING ON HIS VISIT TO PEKING REFERRED TO HIM AS THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE.

    IN MOSCOW THE PRINCE HELD LONG DISCUSSIONS WITH PREMIER ALEXEI KOSYGIN AND SOVIET PARTY LEADER LEONID BREZHNEV. NO ANNOUNCEMENTS WERE MADE AFTER THE TALKS, BUT ONE PUZZLING FACT WAS THAT THE PRINCE TWICE PUT OFF HIS DEPARTURE DATE FOR CHINA.
