The United States Delegation to the Department of State


Secto 410. Repeated information London 261, Paris 408, Bangkok 20, USUN New York 14. Department pass USUN New York. I spoke to Eden this morning along lines Tosec 378.1 He feels very strongly we must not complicate present situation in Geneva by insisting upon broadening Thailand appeal to Laos and Cambodia. He points out language Security Council draft resolution largely academic, as it will in any event be vetoed. Resolution can be written any way that appears desirable at time matter comes before General Assembly.

He will send instructions Dixon to try to work out with Lodge some language that would meet his point while not necessarily precluding POC operations outside Thailand.

Have not yet been able to see Prince Wan.
