A Cambodian peace plan giving the United Nations a strong role in an interim government was examined by the nation's four warring factions Friday. One official warned time was running out to settle the conflict.

"The world has changed. Other priorities can and will require our attention," said French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas. "The international community cannot indefinitely work out the fate of Cambodia if Cambodians themselves do not have the political will to do so."But Dumas said he was encouraged that no one issued an outright rejection of the proposal. The meeting of the 12-member Supreme National Council of Cambodia was expected to continue Saturday, said Dumas, who urged acceptance of the U.N. plan.
