Description

As war between France and Vietnam escalates, the Viet Minh’s People’s Army of Vietnam invades the northeastern part of the French Protectorate of Laos on 12 April 1953. This provides the opportunity for the Pathet Lao to establish a "resistance government" in Viet Minh territory on 19 April 1953, in opposition to the Royal Lao government.
