  • Description

    In Bangkok, the Vietnamese Prime Minister, Pham Van Dong, has pledged Monsieur Dong and Tahi Prime Minister Kriangsak Chamanand on Sunday (10 September) signed a joint statement saying their countries, agreed to refrain from carrying out subversion, force or threats of force against one another.

    SYNOPSIS: Afterwards, Monsieur Dong was questioned on the non-aggression agreement at a press conference at the end of his five-day visit to Thailand. Asked if the agreement meant there would be no support for any communist guerrilla activity in Thailand, he said he wanted to stress clearly that this was correct.

    Reuters news agency said most of Thailand's outlawed communist leadership was Maoist in ideology, but was prepared to accept help from almost any source. Some of Thailand's estimated eleven thousand insurgents operate from bases inside Cambodia, Vietnam;s neighbour, and bitterest foe.

    Monsieur Dong had apologies to the Thai people for the problems the follow of boat refugees had caused all nearby countries in the region. He had talks with the Thai government on this problem, and would keep studying it in the hope of finding a solution.
