  • Description

    AN AMERICAN HOSPITAL SHIP IS IN HONGKONG FROM SOUTH VIETNAMESE WATERS. THE SHIP IS ONE OF A NUMBER OF AMERICAN SHIPS USING THE PORT FACILITIES THERE AT A TIME OF INCREASING PROTESTS BY THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. BRITAIN, THEY CHARGE, IS ALLOWING THE COLONY TO BE USED AS A VIETNAM WAR BASE.

    THE CHINESE SAY THAT THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IS CONNIVING WITH THE U.S. TO USE HONGKONG AS AN AUXILIARY BASE IN WHAT IT CALLS THE RECENT ESCALATION OF THE BOMBING OF HANOI.

    FOREIGN OFFICE OFFICIALS IN LONDON SAID NO OFFICIAL PROTEST NOTE HAD BEEN RECEIVED AT THE PRESENT TIME BUT BRITAIN HAD CONSISTENTLY REJECTED SUCH ACCUSATIONS FROM PEKING IN THE PAST. FACILITIES FOR REST AND RECREATION WERE AVAILABLE TO FORCES OF FRIENDLY POWERS IN HONGKONG AND IT WAS IN NO SENSE A MILITARY BASE.
