Revolution & Reform in Laos History

A ceasefire agreement was reached in Laos as the USA began negotiating its way out of Vietnam in 1973, (via the Paris agreements, leaving the country was effectively divided into PL and non-PL zones, just as it had been in 1954, only this time under communist control.

A ceasefire agreement was reached in Laos as the USA began negotiating its way out of Vietnam in 1973, (via the Paris agreements, leaving the country was effectively divided into PL and non-PL zones, just as it had been in 1954, only this time under communist control. The Provisional Government of National Union (PGNU) formed and the two sides once more tried to forge a coalition government. Meanwhile as the non-PL Vientiane leadership showed signs of manipulation and corruption by the US, popular support for the PL was growing. Finally the US began withdrawing from Laos. In June 1974 the last Air America plane flew across the Mekong to Thailand.

The rapid fall of Saigon and Phnom Penh immediately after US the withdrawal in April 1975 led the PL to attack Metrang Phu Khun, The loss of the strategic crossroads between Luang Prabang and Vientiane, defended by RLG and Hmong was a terrible defeat for the US-backed forces, and a symbolic final victory in the PL's drawn out struggle.

By 4 May 1975, after concerted LP pressure, four non-LP ministers and seven generals resigned and an exodus of the Lao political and commercial elite began across the Mekong into Thailand. PL forces took Pakse, Champasak and Savannaket without opposition and on 23 August they took Vientiane in the same manner.
