Duan's refusal to pay heed to China meant a hardening of Peking's position on aid. Five weeks before Le Duan's visit, Le Thanh Nghi, whom the Chinese had nicknamed "the Beggar" because of his frequent aid-seeking trips to Peking, had traveled to the Chinese capital to ask for China's assistance . 26 When, in June of 1973, Zhou had asked Duan to stop fighting in the south for two years, he had promised to give Vietnam aid at the 1973 level for five more years. But on August 13, 1975, when Nghi went to see a then-dying Zhou, he heard a different tune.

Khmers had never been reconciled to the loss of those coastal islands to French Cochin China and later to the successor Republic of Vietnam.
