    Background: Indonesian and Malaysian negotiators reached limited agreement in Bangkok on Wednesday on ways of restoring peace between their two nations, but without immediately ending three years of "confrontation."
    Indonesia's Foreign Minister, Adam Malik and Malaysia's deputy Premier Tun Abdul Razak ended three days of talks by exchanging sealed packages containing proposals to end the undeclared war.

    Their agreement, signalled by popping champagne corks, prayers, and shouts of peace, has now to be approved by both Djakarta and Kuala Lumpur Governments. That approval has not so far been given. In Djakarta today (Friday) Mr. Malik read a statement which said the outcome of the talks as a basis for further settlement of the Malaysian issue would need further discussion for achievement of a final conclusion.

    The ceremony ending the talks was held in the Manangasila guest house where the Indonesian delegation had been staying.

    Now both delegations have returned home and await approval of the proposals. One difficult problem outstanding is the future of Malaysia's Borneo Territories. Indonesia is insisting on self-determination for the people of Sabah and Sarawak, the two Borneo states of the Malaysian Federation.
