    Background: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) decided to send Malaysian Foreign Minister to Hanoi next month for talks with Vietnam on the Kampuchean conflict.

    A joint statement at the end of a one-day informal meeting on Friday (14 Dec) in Kuala Lumpur said the foreign ministers of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand were resolved to intensify efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Kampuchea.

    The ministers were meeting at the urgent request of Thailand to discuss the situation along its border with Kampuchea.

    The meeting decided that Malaysian Foreign Minister Tunku Ahmad Rithaudeen will inform Hanoi that the ASEAN group is prepared to open a dialogue on the situation in Indochina.

    The communique stated that the foreign ministers have reservation likely to withdraw recognition of the ousted Pol Pot regime of Khmer Rouge after Vietnam pulls out its troops from the war-torn country.

    tunku Rithauddeen also made clear that the foreign ministers would not consider switching recognition to the Hanoi-backed Heng Samrin administration while Vietnam troops remain in Kampuchea.
