Landon Chronicles (1945): Kenneth on the Overall Purpose of His Diplomatic Trips (hour 69, clip 9)
Date:
1945
Description:
The overall purpose of Kenneth's trip was initially to be a political advisor on the negotiations between the English and the Thai. The British had made twenty-one demands on the Thai, which would have made Thailand virtually a British colony. the demands had largely been diminished to one. The British were demanding that Thailand contribute all of its rice free to Burma, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Kenneth took the point of view that the Thai didn't have the rice; it was the Chinese merchants who did. (Length 3:18)
