Background: Vietnamese troops have been in control of Kampuchea for three years this month. They are regarded as protectors by the Heng Samrin government which they support. But others do not support that view. Guerrillas loyal to the ousted Pol Pot government and other factions continue to threaten the government and no end to the war is in sight. The Vietnamese forces are preparing for long stay -- living off the land. Vietnamese civilians have also arrived, including fisherman exploiting rich fishing grounds in Kampuchean rivers. Many have settled in the country. Other Vietnamese have settled on the land, and merchants have set up shop in Phnom Penh. Recently the Kampuchean government has considered proposals to return the Vietnamese civilian settlers to their home country, but after lengthy consideration the plan was not adopted.
