Asia and the Pacific

The situation in Asia and the Pacific, aggravated by certain long-standing conflicts, remained tense in 1989. The United Nations Command continued to report violations of the 1953 Armistice Agreement between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea. Following the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, completed in February, lighting in the country escalated and caused more people to seek refugee status in Pakistan and Iran. Viet Nam’s announcement of its complete troop withdrawal from Kampuchea in September was refuted by the opposition parties to the conflict because of the lack of a proper international control mechanism.
