UN May Force Entry to Khmer Rouge Zones

PHNOM PENH (AP)-The U.N. peacekeeping chief told the rebellious Khmer Rouge that

U.N. police would enter guerrilla-controlled areas where they have been denied full

access since April, a U.N. official said.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Yasushi Akashi issued the

warning at the Aug. 5 meeting of the Supreme National Council, the body that comprises

leaders of Cambodia's four political factions.

Akashi also overruled a Khmer Rouge proposal to severely restrict Vietnamese settlers

from voting in the 1993 election to determine Cambodia's postwar government.

As head of the U.N. Transitional Authority in Cambodia, Akashi has the final say

if there is disagreement among the four factions.

"UNTAC will consider itself entitled to send civilian police and military police

to zones under the DK's [Khmer Rouge's] control at a suitable point in the near future,"

the U.N. official who attended the meeting, quoted Akashi as saying.
