Prior to the Indo-china War I and the Indo-china War II, the French Indo-china was a part of the French Colonial Empire of the South East Asian entity. The interest from France in the South East Asian countries and its affairs initially varied but was on the rise from time to time. This was especially booming in the seventeenth century, due to the rise in domestic politics and competition with the British colonial expansion. The Nguyen Dynasty, which was led by Emperor Gia Long, resorted to power in 1802. He was under the assistance of the French. Tensions between the costs and the consequent benefits of the European assistance led to strong debates among the natives. Further, foreign infiltration challenged the existing socio-political powers. Regardless of locals' hesitation to foreign rule, the French ruled the area which in the present day is covered under Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam and is also regarded as the Indo-chinese Union. The union was formed after the rule was established in 1893. France held these colonized nations until 1954 with the onset of the Geneva Accords by officially removing the French rule in Indo-china.
