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.
