Part Two: Your Team’s Actions and Reactions
As a result of growing war in neighboring South Vietnam, we declare officially neutral in any of the region’s conflicts. These polices can help us not to import the war to Cambodia.
Our declaration towards “Tet Offensive”: 1.keep neutral and nonaligned; 2.wish for a peaceful settlement to conflicts. Our vital objectives are keeping independent and neutral.
North Vietnam made a secret channel which influence Laos and Cambodia. We first secretly advised Laos to condemn the North Vietnam publicly together. Besides, we contacted the North Vietnam, making efforts to ensure our people and not to cooperate with the communists secretly.

We focus on independence and declare officially neutral to keep the war out of Cambodia. When North Vietnam made secret channel which would do harm to Cambodia, we condemned North Vietnam publicly with Laos to put pressure to them.
We successfully achieve our “strategic objectives”. We keep our state independent and avoid importing the war to Cambodia.
