    MAJOR GENERAL TRAN THIEM KHIEM TOURED THE TRAINING CAMP WITH COLONEL NGUYEN DUC THANG, SOUTH VIETNAMESE MILITARY STAFF; SOUTH VIETNAMESE AMBASSADOR TO MALAYSIA, MR. TRAN KIM PHOUNG; AND COLONEL LEWIS, MILITARY ADVISER TO THE BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION IN MALAYSIA.

    THE VISITORS SAW THE TRAINEES GO THROUGH THE VARIOUS PHASES OF INSURGENT WARFARE WITH BRITISH GURKHA TROOPS. THE TRAINEES ARE ON A SIX-WEEK COURSE AFTER WHICH THEY RETURN TO THEIR COUNTRY TO FIGHT THE COMMUNIST VIETCONG. ANOTHER BATCH WILL BE SENT TO THE CAMP FOR SIMILAR TRAINING.

    THE DEFENCE MINISTER WAS REPORTED RECENTLY TO HAVE SAID THAT SOUTH VIETNAM AND MALAYSIA WERE THE FRONT LINES OF FREEDOM AND PEACE IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD. AS SUCH, THE GOVERNMENTS OF BOTH COUNTRIES SHOULD WORK IN CLOSE CO-OPERATION TO FIGHT COMMUNIST AGGRESSION IN SOUTH EAST ASIA.

    "IF SOUTH VIETNAM IS ALONE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE COMMUNISTS, AND IF IT LOST THE STRUGGLE, THE COMMUNISTS WILL HEAD TOWARDS MALAYSIA, DEFENCE MINISTER TRAN THIEM KHIEM WARNED.
