President Bush has announced that he will send a U.S. ambassador to Laos for the first time since the 1975 Communist victories over U.S.-backed forces in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. The highest-ranking U.S. official in Vientiane has been a charge d'affaires since ties were downgraded in December, 1975. The decision is based on U.S. satisfaction with Vientiane's cooperation in efforts to resolve the fate of the 528 Americans in Laos who remain unaccounted for as a result of the war in Indochina.
