Background: At Vientiane airport over the weekend, a Pathet Lao delegation arrived to begin further rounds of peace talks with Laotian leaders.
The last round of talks, which ended suddenly last month when the Pathet Lao representatives were recalled, achieved only token agreements to end the fighting which has raged sporadically throughout Laos since the beginning of the struggle in Indochina.
The delegation which arrived over the weekend was welcomed by officials of the Pathet Lao embassy in Vientiane. After brief words to some of the newsmen gathered at the airport, the members drove straight to their residence to prepare for the coming rounds of talks.
