ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the foreign policy of France in Southeast Asia. After the victory of the Communists at Dien Bien Phu, Vietnam in April, 1954, the lighting power of the French in Indo-China was broken. Only a quick armistice could prevent a complete collapse of their armies. Authoritative French voices now confirm the fact that France has given up Indo-China and is now working for an agreement with the Communists. Once it is understood that the French, after their military defeat, no longer feel able to hold Indo-China, it is easier to understand why they are interested mainly in saving their army and their possessions, they are working for an agreement with the Communists in order to continue to do business with their former colony as long as possible, even if it means doing business with Communism.
