Cambodia, which had no common border with North Vietnam or China, was not immediately subject to any real or imagined threat. Sihanouk was in any case eager to adopt a policy of neutrality. But Laos presented greater problems. It was a vast and thinly-populated country, whose borders with China and Vietnam were not only long but also remote- and in some places not very clearly defined. Precise national boundaries were in any case a relatively recent innovation in this part of Asia: the product of mapping exercises by colonial officials less than a century before, and quite alien to the traditional ways of thinking of the Laotians, Thais and Vietnamese.
The two latter organisations, although virtually dominated by the Viet-Minh, would in this way have secured international recognition. Dong also proposed that there should be no ceasefire without a political settlement for the whole of Indochina. In the end, however, the Communist powers conceded that the agreements for Laos and Cambodia should be signed only by the French and the Viet-Minh, both of whom were then obliged to withdraw from the two countries (except for a small French force in Laos) leaving behind nonCommunist governments committed to a policy of national unity and diplomatic neutrality.
None of them could be forced to obey the commands of the Bao Dai regime, since their power had depended on direct relations with the French Expeditionary Force and its intelligence officers. Let us examine each in turn. The Cao-Dai The Caodaists (or adepts of the supreme spirit, Cao-Dai) had signed an agreement in January 1947 giving them administrative and paramilitary control over large parts of the provinces ofTay-Ninh and My-Tho. The 'new religion' they had established in the midI920S had deep roots in the Sino-Vietnamese tradition of Taoist spiritism and apocalyptic Buddhism, being in reality a merger of older sects.
