    TRANSCRIPT:



    (SIHANOUK) I PLAN TO TALK TO MOSCOW AND PEKING AND TO SAY TO THEM THAT THEY SHOULD ADVISE THEIR ALLIES, THE VIETCONG, THE VIETMINH TO AVOID, TO REFRAIN THEMSELVES FROM INTERFERING IN THE AFFAIRS OF THE CAMBODIANS, BECAUSE CAMBODIA WILL NOT BE WILLING TO BE COMMUNIZED, AND THEY WILL MEET WITH STRONG RESISTANCE OF THE CAMBODIAN PEOPLE IF THEY WANT TO COMMUNIZE US, SO THEIR INTEREST WOULD BE, YOU KNOW, IN THEIR SUPPORT OF OUR NEW POLICY. IT WOULD BE FOR THEM THE MORE NORMAL.



    QUESTION DO YOU FEEL THAT AMERICA, SAY THE CIA, HAS HELPED TO STIR UP THE TROUBLE IN CAMBODIA? OR ARE YOUR PEOPLE GENUINELY AGAINST THE VIETCONG INTERFERENCE?



    SIHANOUK: EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE BUT I DO NOT WANT TO ACCUSE THE UNITED STATES. I HAVE NOT ANY PROOF ABOUT IT BUT I CAN SAY THAT SOME OFFICERS IN OUR ARMY AND MANY DEPUTIES AND MANY DEPUTIES AND MANY MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT IN PHNOM PENH THEY WANT TO BE OUR ALLIES IN ORDER TO HAVE DOLLARS, YOUR DOLLARS. THEY DON'T THINK ABOUT THE DESTINY AND THE FATE OF OUR HOMELAND. THEY DON'T MIND ABOUT IT. THEY ARE MORE PATRIOTIC FOR DOLLARS THAN FOR CAMBODIA.
