Discussion between Zhou Enlai and Prince Sihanouk
ZHOU ENLAI AND PRINCE SIHANOUK
Beijing, 4 p.m., 1 April 1970
Zhou Enlai: The people in Cambodia have been extremely excited after hearing Your Highness’s speech to the people and the five-point statement. The people in many places have been mobilized. In the provinces in northeastern Cambodia and close to Phnom Penh there are protest demonstrations. The slogan of the masses is to request that Your Highness return to Cambodia. Lon Nol originally planned to organize a demonstration supporting the reactionary regime, but this plan has failed.
Zhou Enlai expresses approval that the Cambodian people want Prince Sihanouk to return.
