  • Description

    King Savong Vatthana made his first public appearance in many years on Friday (24 Nov) when he attended prayers for peace in the Laotian capital, Vientiane.

    The prayers were part of the annual festival of That Luang, traditional celebrations of the end of the rainy season and planting months. This year's festival had special significance with the prayers for a successful outcome to the negotiations for and end to the Indochina conflict.

    There has been wide speculation in Laos that representatives of the pro-Communist Pathet Lao and the coalition government headed by Prince Souvanna Phouma may soon reach agreement to end the internal strife. But recently there has been increased fighting near the capital.
