[China and Vietnam in Laos
"The mountains may wear out, rivers
may run dry, but the Lao-Vietnam relationship
will last forever."
It was said by the former president of Kaysone
Phomvihan, Laos; the partner was the Vietnamese
partner. In 1989, when I first went into
Laos, Vientiane, it was under a night time
curfew. The each corner of the streets in
the city was stacked by sandbag with the
soldiers in the rifle at the ready. Today's
article is describing something like that,
as within the territory of Laos, from 40,000
to 50,000 troops are stationed in Vietnam.
Lao government senior officials, 10 out of
11, are able to speak Vietnamese fluently.
Many young people in this period have been
studying in Vietnam's Hanoi. The exception
is the prime minister Bouasone Bouphavanh
who nominated in 2006 Eighth Party Congress.
He was educated in Moscow. In 1980s, China
power did not come most of the lower Mekong
However, at the end of the 1990s, along with
its economic growth, China was expanding
and came into Laos. Today's Asia Times article,
the relationship between Vietnam and Laos,
China's advancement, but for Vietnam's emotions,
are described in the longer feature.
Recently, in Cambodia, China is a big support
to the development of hydroelectric dams.
China is now increasing its investment into
energy resources in Myanmar. However, it
is difficult to understand why China is coming
into Cambodia, or what connection there with
chinafs between into Myanmar and Cambodia.
China is advancing into the Laos. However,
Vietnam is already a certain base in southern
Laos. In addition, Vietnam, Cambodia and
Laos, the point of the triangle development
of the three countries is maintained. From
the 1970s, the construction of Ho Chi Minh
route through the southern part of Laos,
Laos and Vietnam have a history of cooperation.
I have a great interest in China's advancing
to northern Laos, skipping the southern part
of Laos, and to Cambodia.
Now, the Indian Ocean is controlled by the
Navy of the United States and India. Africa's
support for China is increasing. This is
to cross the Indian Ocean. China is also
actively stretching to help several island
countries. In that sense, the perspective
of the port of Cambodia is very important
to think the present situation in Cambodia.
Thailand's political situation has been tense.
Mr.Samck, Prime Minister, met the king and
not a word originated. Army commander reportedly
required the prime minister to resign to
the news flow.
