Viet Minh forces began moving into Laos in a serious way in 1946 and had some 17,000 agents there by 1953. Souphanouvong formed a government in exile in Vietnam in 1950, married a Vietnamese woman, and met with Ho Chi Minh. His policy centerpiece was to get rid of the French and build something known as Pathet Lao, a Lao Nation. The Pathet Lao was a communist military-political movement, much like the Viet Minh in Vietnam.
