  • Description

    BANGKOK'S PISANULOKE GUEST HOUSE HAS BEEN THE TEMPORARY RESIDENCE OF THE MALAYSIAN DELEGATION, LED BY ITS DEPUTY PREMIER TUN ABDUL RAZAK. TUESDAY WAS THE VENUE OF THE SECOND DAY OF TALKS BETWEEN MALAYSIAN AND INDONESIAN DELEGATION IN THEIR EFFORTS TO REACH A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF INDONESIA'S THREE-YEAR LONG CONFRONTATION WITH THE FEDERATION.

    THE TALKS LASTER FOR ON-AND-HALF HOURS. WHEN IT WAS OVER, BOTH TUN RAZAK AND INDONESIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. ADAM MALIK, TOLD THE WAITING THRONG OF REPORTERS THAT THEY WERE STILL MAKING PROGRESS IN THEIR TALKS.

    ASKED WHETHER HIS TALKS WITH MR. MALIK COVERED THE QUESTION OF THE REFERENDUM FOR THE MALAYSIAN BORNEO TERRITORIES, TUN RAZAK REPLIED, "ASK NO QUESTIONS." (INDONESIA HAS INSISTED ON SELF-DETERMINATION FOR THE MALAYSIAN PEOPLES OF BORNEO. IT REFUSED A UNITED NATIONS FINDINGS IN JULY 1963 THAT THE PEOPLES OF BORNEO WISHED TO JOIN THE FEDERATION WHICH WAS FORMED TWO MONTHS LATER.)
    THE TALKS WERE TEMPERED BY THE DRAFT COMMITTEE'S FAILURE TO AGREE ENTIRELY ON A JOINT COMMUNIQUE. BOTH SIDES STRUGGLED TO FIND A FORMULA THAT WOULD END THEIR CONFRONTATION. THIS NECESSITATED A LATE SESSION BETWEEN TUN RAZAK AND MR. MALIK. THEY ALSO DISCUSSED THE DIFFERENCES THE MILITARY GROUPS OF BOTH COUNTRIES FELT IN THEIR TALKS ON MONDAY AFTERNOON OVER THE MILITARY MEASURES TO BE TAKEN IN THE BORNEO TERRITORIES IN ENDING THE CONFRONTATION.

    IN THE AFTERNOON, BOTH THE MALAYSIAN AND INDONESIAN DELEGATIONS HAD LUNCH AT THE INDONESIAN AMBASSADOR'S RESIDENCE. ALSO PRESENT WAS TUN THANAT KHOMAN, THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF THAILAND.
