The World

Vietnam rejected a proposal by Cambodian resistance leaders to settle the seven-year-old Cambodian conflict through a two-stage withdrawal of Vietnamese troops and installation of a four-party coalition government. The proposal--approved by China, which supports the anti-Vietnamese resistance--was advanced by Prince Norodom Sihanouk, Cambodia's former ruler; the Khmer People's National Liberation Front, and the Communist Khmer Rouge. The United Nations recognizes the resistance coalition as Cambodia's legitimate government in preference to the Hanoi-installed Heng Samrin regime.
