Vietnam One Country

Vietnam One Country

The P.R.G. stands for the eventual reunification of Vietnam, and its representatives in the Vietnamese peace delegation that visited Australia stressed that Vietnam was one country. However the P.R.G. and the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in the north, believe that reunification will not take place over night and must be achieved by peaceful means.

Until Vietnam is reunified the P.R.G. is pledged to carry out a strict foreign policy of neutrality. It has been recognised by 38 countries and last year was accepted by the conference of 60 Foreign Ministers of the Non-aligned countries as a full member of the Non-aligned group. Futhermore the fact that the P.R.G. is recognised in the Paris Peace Agreement as an equal party to the Thieu administration shows that it has a substantial claim to be recognised as a government in its own right.
