In 1973, a cease fire was declared and it eventually ended the war. As part of the Paris Peace Talk, the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger signed an agreement which sealed the political fate of the Hmong. The United States then disarmed the Hmong people of the weapons they have received and then they left Laos. The United States failed to live up to their words and abandoned the Hmong which eventually led to the rise of communism in Laos. 

“They said you fight for the US CIA. If you win US win the war and you ate on top of the world. If you lose, we will take care of you.”
