  • Description

    President Nixon's envoy, General Alexander Haig, arrived back in Washington n Monday (13 November) after five days of talks in South Korea and Saigon over latest developments in Vietnam war peace negotiations.

    General Haig was summoned immediately to Resident Nixon's mountain retreat at Camp David to report on his meetings with President Chung-Hee Park in Seoul and President Nguyan Van Thieu in South Vietnam. Mr. Nixon's adviser, Dr. Henry Kissinger, also attended the de-briefing.

    Dr. Kissinger was reported to be standing by to return directly to Paris fore what could be a final meeting with North Vietnamese negotiator Le Duc Tho in bringing the war to an end.

    SYNOPSIS: The possibility of peace in Vietnam came another step nearer on Monday when Untied States envoy, General Alexander Haig, returned to washington after five days of talks with President Park in South Korea and President Thieu in South Vietnam. General Haig flew straight on from Washington for a full de-briefing with Mr. Nixon in the Presidential retreat at Camp David. Also in attendance at the session was Presidential Adviser, Doctor Henry Kissinger, who was reportedly standing by to fly direct to Paris for what could be a final meeting with North Vietnamese negotiator Le Duc Tho to achieve a peace settlement.

    A major obstacle to the peace agreement is still President Thieu's objections to various aspects of the draft. South Vietnamese Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam says that President Thieu would not sign any treaty until these matters were cleared up.
