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.
