    AGREEMENT WAS REACHED OVER THE PROCEDURAL PROBLEMS WHICH HAVE BEEN HOLDING UP THE ENLARGED VIETNAM PEACE TALKS SINCE NOVEMBER 6, IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY (THURSDAY) IN PARIS. IN SEPARATE PRESS CONFERENCES, REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES, SOUTH VIETNAM AND NORTH VIETNAM OUTLINED THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT. THE FIRST SESSION OF THE ENLARGED TALKS IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN NEXT SATURDAY (18 JANUARY).

    ONE OF THE MAJOR STUMBLING BLOCKS DELAYING THE START OF THE TALKS HAS BEEN THE SHAPE OF THE TABLE AT WHICH THE DELEGATES WILL SIT. THE DELEGATIONS FINALLY AGREED TODAY TO USE A SOLID ROUND TABLE FLANKED ON OPPOSITE SIDES BY TWO SMALLER RECTANGULAR TABLES.

    MR WILLIAM JORDAN, THE SPOKESMAN FOR THE UNITED STATES DELEGATION, DESCRIBED HOW THE TABLE PROBLEM HAD BEEN SOLVED.

    THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE REPRESENTATIVE, MR NGUYEN TRIEU DAN, SAID THAT SOLUTIONS HAD ALSO BEEN REACHED TO PROBLEMS OF SPEAKING ORDER, NAMEPLATES AND FLAGS.

    IN A THIRD PRESS CONFERENCE, THE NORTH VIETNAMESE SPOKESMAN, MR NGUYEN THAN LE, DESCRIBED THE WAY IN WHICH THE PROCEDURAL PROBLEMS HAD BEEN SOLVED.

    OUTGOING UNITED STATES CHIEF NEGOTIATOR MR W.AVERILL HARRIMAN, SAID THAT WITH THE COMPROMISE, THE DELEGATIONS CAN LOOK AT THE CONFERENCE IN ANY WAY THEY WISH.
