    Background: Mr. Son Sann, Prime Minister in the recently-formed coalition of Kampuchean resistance groups, held talks with the United Kingdom Foreign Minister Francis Pym on September 15. Although no details on the purpose of the talks were released, Mr. son Sann was expected to request financial and military aid for his coalition which is backed by ASEAN (Association of South Asean Nations). Earlier this year, Mr. Son Sann's Khmer People's National Liberation Front (KPNLF) joined forces with the communist Khmer Rouge and Prince Sihanouk's Moulinaka faction in a combined effort to dislodge the Vietnamese-backed government in Phnom Penh. shortly after the coalition was formed, Vietnam announced a winding down of its military presence in Kampuchea and the partial withdrawal of its 180,000-strong occupation force. In August, however, Thailand's National Security Council announced that Vietnam was stepping up military activity and receiving fresh supplies of Soviet-made heavy weapons. for their part, the guerrilla groups have more than 9,000 men along the border area but General Dien Del, The KPNLF Commander, has said they would welcome supplies of arms and medicine.
