Talks aimed at ending the conflict in Cambodia fell apart with no date set for another meeting after rebels rejected government counterproposals to a peace plan presented by opposition leader Prince Norodom Sihanouk. Representatives of the Cambodian government and three guerrilla factions, including the Khmer Rouge, met for two hours in Paris. Sihanouk, who is insisting on acceptance of his five-point plan, did not take part, but rebel representatives said the session was suspended after no new elements emerged. “I drew up five points and they can take them or leave them,” Sihanouk told a news conference.
