  • Description

    Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, chief Vietcong negotiator at the Paris peace talk, told Visnews Paris bureau chief Jean Magny in an exclusive interview on Thursday (5 August) that President Nixon's forthcoming trip to the People's Republic of China would not lessen China's support for the "Vietnamese people's struggle for freedom". Speaking in French, she also accused the United States government of delaying tactics in the peace talks. By giving no answer to the Vietcong's latest peace plan, which provided for the release of American prisoners of war, American showed she was not as concerned with peace as she claimed, said Madame Binh.

    The stumbling block in the Paris peace talks has always been the American prisoners of war in North Vietnam. The United States has insisted on their release as part of a peace agreement. In the Vietcong 7-point peace plan presented last month, the release of American prisoners of war was to begin as soon as the United States set a date for complete withdrawal - but so far the U.S. has not set a definite date.
