An Accurate Assessment: The Secretary of State's Visit to Cambodia

18/9/97

While Cambodia was beginning to fall into disarray from political differences, Amb. Quinn found himself in a difficult political situation. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was planning to visit the country on a goodwill mission and tour around. Soon, heavy fighting breaks out across the country that would put the Secretary of State in grave danger. Hoping to keep a strong relationship between the United States and Cambodia, Amb. Quinn works to come up with a way that would allow her to visit safely. However, it seems as though it may be too big a of a challenge to work out.
