    Background: IN AMERICA, A WHITE HOUSE WELCOME ON WEDNESDAY FOR KING SAVANG VATTHANA OF LAOS. THE 55-YEAR-OLD SOUTH-EAST ASIAN MONARCH WAS GREETED BY PRESIDENT KENNEDY WHO LATER ASSURED HIM DURING A 45-MINUTE-LONG CONFERENCE THAT THE UNITED STATES WAS DETERMINED TO ASSIST NEUTRAL LAOS IN MAINTAINING ITS INDEPENDENCE.

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY PRAISED KING SAVANG FOR THE "GREAT COURAGE AND PERSISTENCE" WITH WHICH HE HAD THE BURDENS OF HIS RESPONSIBILITY. KING SAVANG REPLIED THAT HIS THREE-DAY VISIT WAS UNDERTAKEN IN A SPIRIT OF FRIENDSHIP AND TO SIGNIFY THE NEW STATUS OF LAOS AS A NEUTRAL NATION. THE KING, ACCOMPANIED BY PRIME MINISTER SOUVANNA PHOUMA AND OTHER MEMBERS OF HIS GOVERNMENT, FLEW FROM NEW YORK IN A SPECIAL AIR FORCE PLANE SENT BY MR. KENNEDY.

    ON THE DAY THE KING AND THE PRESIDENT MET, THE PATHET LAO LEADER IN LAOS, PRINCE SOUPHANOUVONG, ACCUSED THE UNITES STATES OF "WARMONGERING AND DIRECT INTERVENTION IN THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF THE COUNTRY."
