The accords brought about the neutralization of Laos. The reference to North Viet- namese forces passing through Laos significantly did not state their destination, but laid the ba- sis for further action if these forces are engaging in the South Viet Nam fighting. Difficult Situation The State Department has said repeatedy in the past that here has been substantial infil- jration from North Viet Nam, although there has been no re- ports of North Vietnamese army jnits fighting as units in South Viet Nam.
