Cooperating With the KR?

Cooperating With the KR?

The Institute for Cooperation and Development is a consortium composed of one province

and seven Municipalities. It promotes cooperation with developing countries. It also

works for the reception of non-EEC citizens and for the creation of a non-racist

society, by means of multi-racial educational programs in schools.

As we have been working with Cambodia since 1987, we are writing to you to express

our particular concern about the failure of the Paris Peace Accords.

In our opinion, the Khmer Rouge leadership has been given too much time and the diplomacy

has been too patient: on Jan. 1 the last ultimatum expired and they haven't accepted

the peace accords yet.

Faced with the failure of the international community to create a neutral political

environment which is the prerequisite for free and fair elections, scheduled for

May 1993, we deem it necessary to appeal to the sensibility of the representatives

of countries that are in a position to play an important role in sustaining the peace

process in Cambodia, as yours is.

We look forward a prompt reply from you, trusting in your interest in avoiding Cambodia

falling back in civil war.
