HC Deb 12 June 1985 vol 80 c488W
Sir Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the presence of the Khmer Rouge movement in the coalition of interests currently representing Cambodia in the United Nations general assembly.

Mr. Rifkind

We support the aims of the resistance coalition as a whole, which is seeking to bring about the complete withdrawal from Cambodia of Vietnam's illegal occupation forces. However, we have no dealings with the Khmer Rouge; the withdrawal of our formal recognition of the Pol Pot regime was announced on 6 December 1979.
