I wish to express my concern regarding the feelings I found in Phnom Penh that American
policy towards Cambodia could be crucial to the United Nations Peace Policy.
The last thing your country needs is further involvement by the Americans. While
the present efforts of the United Nations in its dealings with the Khmer Rouge might
appear inept, it is at least blessed by the non-involvement of the Americans!
The dichotomy of America as a peace broker is its unenviable record as the world's
leading arms dealer. An influx of American weapons falling into the wrong hands is
the last thing Cambodia needs at present.
Eventually, the responsibility and initiatives in dealing with the Khmer Rouge rests
with the people and future government of Cambodia, and I am fully confident that
this will be achieved. Your country has suffered enough through the presence of America.
