The Khmer Rouge and its two non-communist guerrilla allies said Wednesday that they support a plan to place Cambodia under U.N. control until a new government can be elected.
Vietnam and the government it installed in Cambodia have not responded to the proposal made Tuesday by the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council. Talks on Cambodia are to be resumed Friday in New York between U.S. and Vietnamese diplomats.
Analysts in Bangkok, Thailand, say the Cambodian government wants to retain interim power and limit the U.N. role to organizing elections.
On Tuesday, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council--the United States, the Soviet Union, China, Britain and France--announced a proposal calling for a cease-fire in Cambodia and for the United Nations then to “supervise and control . . . if necessary” five key Cambodian ministries: defense, foreign affairs, finance, public security and information.
