In Saigon. President Nguyen Van Thieu <=aici military cooperation between South Vietnam and Cambodia can only result from a request by Cambodian officials.
"The present government of Cambodia still holds to neutrality and does not intend to participate in any military alliance.” he said in a statement to the Vietnamese press. ‘‘Therefore there is no question of military cooperation.”
At about the time the state, ment was issued, the South Vietnamese military command issued a denial that South Vietnamese troops made a caid two miles inside Cambodia on Fri-dav to fight the Viet Cong.
However, informed sources who insisted the raid did lake place said the South Vietnamese consulted with Cambodian offi cials before making the attack.
There were no new reports of fighting in Laos. where the North Vietnamese are threatening the army base of Long Cheng 80 miles north of Vientiane, the capital.
Hanoi radio quoted a Pathet Lao claim that a Thai artillery unit, equipped with 155mm field pieces, had been flown to Laos. It said Hie unit was stationed in the Paksane area 75 miles northeast of Vientiane to support government forces.
