CHAUDOC, South Vietnam, March 17 — Cambodian troops tried to drive a Vietcong battal ion back across the border into South Vietnam yesterday and Sunday and called in South Vietnamese artillery fire to help, highly reliable informants reported today.

A Cambodian officer was in radio contact with the chief of South Vietnam's Anphu Dis trict, adjoining Cambodia, dur ing the entire operation, these informants said. The officer di rected 105‐mm artillery fire from the district's guns onto both sides of the border where the Vietcong were reported moving.

American officials said it was the first time they knew of Cambodians and South Vietna mese working openly together against the Vietcong.

[In Moscow, Prince Noro dom Sihanouk of Cambodia said that the anti‐Communist demonstrations in Pnompenh would not affect his country's neutrality. Page 12.]

The Cambodian military op eration was the second known Ito have been launched Sunday against Vietcong and North Vietnamese forces which had been ordered by Cambodia to leave her territory by dawn Sunday.

For four hours before the deadline a Cambodian battalion was reported to have exchanged fire with infantrymen guarding the base of the North Vietna mese First Infantry Division around Nui O, a mountain in Cambodia.

South Vietnamese forces were not called in then. But their aid was sought later Sunday when a force estimated at five companies of Cambodian in fantry men reportedly began pushing south toward the An phu District, which thrusts like a finger into Cambodia along the Mekong River.

The Vietcong were known to have at least 400 soldiers in base area just opposite the tip of Anphu. There are an esti mated 40,000 North Vietnamese and Vietcong soldiers in Cam bodia.

South Vietnamese spotter planes reported “large‐scale troop movement” in Cambodia and the sound of shooting across the border. Americans here say that approximately 2,000 North Vietnamese and Vietcong soldiers are on the Cambodian side.

Early in the afternoon the Anphu district chief reportedly made radio contact with a Cam bodian officer and got details of the military operation.

Later in the day the Cam bodian officer asked for artil lery support from Anphu, ac cording to informants here, and the support began within a few hours. Several 105‐mm, howit zers, firing on both sides of the border with target coordi nates given by the Cambodian officer, were used steadily for the next two days, the i form ants said.

Only a small proportion of Cambodia's 5,000‐man army is known to be stationed in the southern border area. Ameri cans say they know the loca tion of 20 border outposts op posite Chaudoc. They believe most of these posts are manned by policemen.

“I wish we knew what the Cambodians are really trying to do over there,” commented one United States official. “We just want some advance word on whether we can expect couple more thousand Vietcong around us in the near future.”

While the use of South Viet namese artillery called in by a Cambodian officer is believed to be unprecedented, there have been reports that Cambodian and South Vietnamese ground troops have worked together.

The last time South Vietna mese and Cambodian forces were said to have cooperated was last May, when they con ducted parallel sweeps against the Vietcong along the border in southern Tayninh Province, northwest of Saigon.

There were suggestions at that time that the United States 25th Infantry Division might also become involved by offer ing artillery fire to the Cam bodians on request. The Amer icans were willing, but as far as is known the firing never took place.

SAIGON ARTILLERY AIDED CAMBODIANS


Raids on Reds in Cambodia By Saigon Planes Reported

SAIGON, South Vietnam, March 25—South Vietnamese Air Force planes have struck inside Cambodia at least twice in the last week, in support of Cambodian Army operations against the Vietcong, reliable sources said today.

On Friday, March 20, and again on Monday of this week, South Vietnamese A1‐E fighter bombers attacked positions be lieved to have been occupied by the enemy a few miles inside Cambodia across from Anphu district in Chaudoc Province.

[In Pnompenh, Prince Siso wath Sirik Matak, the First Deputy Premier, disclosed that the Cambodian Govern ment had received notifica tion from North Vietnam and the Vietcong that they were recalling their diplomats from Cambodia. Page 17.]

Both South Vietnamese strikes had been requested by the Cambodian area command ers in meetings with the Anphu district chief, Lieut. Col. Truong Dinh Chat. The meetings were held in a mud‐walled outpost on the Cambodian side of the border.

In addition, South Viet namese artillery batteries have provided close combat support for Cambodian units on at least four occasions since March 16, the sources said.

More than 100 rounds have been fired in Cambodia by the 155‐mm howitzers based in the Anphu district capital during that time.

The air strikes represent the most dramatic example of cross‐border cooperation be tween South Vietnamese and Cambodian troops since the overthrow last week of Prince Norodom Sihanouk as the Cam bodian Chief of State.

During the last 10 days, Cam bodian troops have conducted a battalion‐size sweep opera tiùn on their side of the border in an apparent effort to drive the North Vietnamese and Viet cong units across the South Vietnamese border.

Communist troops have long used the eastern provinces of Cambodia as sanctuaries and supply bases for their opera tions in South Vietnam. The new Government in Pnompenh is seeking the evacuation of the North Vietnamese and Vietcong from Cambodian territory.

According to reliable sources, United States involvement the cross‐border cooperation against the Vietcong has been limited to the use of spotter aircraft. No American troops have been involved in the oper ations, nor has American artil lery been used, it was said.

French ‐ speaking advisers, however, have participated in several of the meetings be tween Cambodian and South Vietnamese officials on the Cambodian side of the border, the informants said.

In the meetings, the Cam bodians are reported to have proposed that Cambodian and South Vietnamese troops coop erate in a large‐scale sweep of the known Vietcong base areas just across the border. The Cambodian commanders are said to have suggested that the South Vietnamese troops oper ate as a blocking force to trap the Vietcong as they escape across the border. At no time have they asked the South Viet namese troops to operate on the Cambodian side of the bor deer.

They have, however, recom mended that the areas in Cam bodia be “softened up” by ad vance air strikes.

The sources said that the Cambodians had proposed that napalm be used as well as teams of helicopter gunships.

It is not known whether the South Vietnamese command has agreed to partciipate in such large‐scale joint operations or to provide anything beyond air strikes and artillery.

A spokesman for the South Vietnamese Army said today that the local commanders had already been authorized to pro vide artillery support and ex change intelligence information with the Cambodians but so far not to commit troops.

Such a decision would pre sumably have to be made by th the South Vietnamese Joint General Staff.

In general, the South Viet namese are anxious to exploit the current differences between the Cambodians and the Viet cong and to do everything pos sible to assist the Cambodians in their military operations.

The Americans here are reluc tant to become involved in any thing that might involve a wid ening of the war or compro mise the professed neutrality of the new Government in Pnom panh.

As a result, the United States command is probably advising against extensive South Viet namese military activity across the border.

Air strikes called in during the last week are not the first by allied planes. On several previous occasions allied planes have struck back at after hav ing received artillery fire from the Cambodian side of the bor der.

In these instances, however, the Cambodians protested, the allied actions and demanded reparations for the damage caused by them.
