  • Description

    Prince Norodom Sihanouk, Cambodia's titular head of state, ??? Chairman Mao Tse-Tung last week (27 August) in Peking. It was the Prince's first stop on his way home after five year's ???.

    The 52-year-old Buddhist monarch, recognised by the Communist-led Khmer Rouge as Cambodia's head, travelled to the Chinese capital by special train from the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. He has been living there for the past three months.

    Prince Sihanouk and other Cambodian leaders were received by Chairman Mao at his residence. They were his first foreign visitors for more than seven weeks. The official New China News Agency said the 81-year-old Chairman, whose health has been a source of deep concern, warmly praised last April's Communist victory in Cambodia.

    Prince Sihanouk was ousted from power in Phnom Penh in March 1970 and made his headquarters in Peking where he received the unstinted backing of the Chinese.

    He left for Hanoi on Saturday (30 August) to attend North Vietnam's Independence Day celebrations. He is expected to fly to Cambodia on 9 September. In the past he has stated he does not want to play an executive role in the new government.
