EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

LIB

Mitchell William Sharp (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I thought that the House might expect me to make a short comment on the situation in Cambodia. I am sure we all listened to President Nixon's speech with deep anxiety. There can be no doubt that the decisions he announced were hard and momentous at what is bound to be a difficult time for our sorely tried neighbour and a dangerous period for the world.

During the period before the International Control Commission was asked to leave Cambodia we were aware, as a member of the commission, of abuses of Cambodian territory by North Viet Nam and we deplored the inability of the International Control Commission to do anything about it, despite our best efforts over a period of years.
