      Although co-operation took place, the Khmer communists did not adopt modern socialist doctrines and eventually allied with China. This regime collapsed after the Japanese surrender in Augustand in the north a party called the Viet Minh under the Vietnamese nationalist leader Ho Chi Minh at once proclaimed a Democratic Republic of Vietnam and assumed power. India's efforts to occupy Thag La was the casus belli for the October Chinese military attack on India. These started with the mishandling of the border issue between the two nations, such as India's unilateral changing of the maps of the time, that had some resemblance of demarcation of such a border and based on which discussions of plotting a mutually acceptable border were to be held.

      He carried with him messages from Indian leaders that there was no intention on New Delhi's part to aggravate the situation. However, was the turning point of the war. Palit claimed that a war with China in the near future could be ruled out. Laos and Cambodia also became independent inbut were both drawn into the Vietnam War.

The tragedy of continental states is that they have ever shifting spheres of influence that constantly create friction.
