  • Description

    In Saigon's Camp Vo Thanh, headquarters of the old International Control Commission composed of India, Poland and Canada, the first meeting was held on Monday of the International Commission for the control and supervision of the ceasefire in Vietnam.

    Civilian and military officers from Canada, Indonesia, Poland and Hungary sat down together in a shabby room -- mainly, as Chief Delegate Canadian Michel Gauvin said, "for the delegates to get to know one another".

    The twenty officials who sat down at the table also discussed the agenda for more formal meetings during their hour-long discussion.

    After the meeting Mr. Gauvin said that the commission's movements would depend on transport facilities provided and it was too soon to know if observers would be able to move freely around the country.

    At the meeting there was no sign of protocol. Some of the delegates were in uniform, some in lounge suits, and some wore open-necked shirts under their jackets.

    The conference was held in a small room furnished only with a long table and many chairs. Some of the window panes were broken and none of the bare white-washed plaster walls carried any pictures or decorations.
