In an article in the Phnom Penh Post issue of Dec. 4-17, 1992, correspondent Doug

Niven reported some information concerning the relations between Vietnam and Cambodia

said to be mentioned by Mr. Raoul Jennar, a consultant monitoring Cambodian affairs

for the NGO's Forum on Cambodia.

The spokesman of the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to the Supreme

National Council of Cambodia is authorized to state that such information is not

true.

The Joint Communique signed on Jan. 25, 1992, by H.R.H. Samdech Preah Norodom Sihanouk,

Head of State and President of the Supreme National Council of Cambodia and H.E.

Mr. Nguyen Manh Cam, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,

stipulated the principles governing the relations between Vietnam and Cambodia and

clearly stated that all problems remaining in the relations of the two countries

would be settled through negotiations between the government of Vietnam and the government

of Cambodia. Vietnam entirely respects and strictly complies with the communique.

The relations between Vietnam and Cambodia are based on the five principles of peaceful

coexistence. The consistent policy of Vietnam regarding Cambodia is to completely

respect the independence and sovereignty and not to interfere in the internal affairs

of Cambodia.

As a Signatory of the Paris Peace Accords, Vietnam has strictly complied with its

provisions concerning Vietnam. Vietnam, together with the countries and parties concerned,

has made positive contributions to step up the full and strict implementation of

the accords.
