  • Description

    ON THE EVE OF PRESIDENT RICHARD M. NIXON'S ARRIVAL IN PARIS TODAY (FRIDAY) BOTH THE NORTH VIETNAMESE AND THE NLF DELEGATES TO THE PARIS PEACE TALKS ATTACKED HIS POLICY OF "AGGRESSION" AND HIS REFUSAL TO "LEARN A LESSON FROM THE EXPERIENCES OF THE JOHNSON ADMINISTRATION." AT THE SAME TIME THE U.S. DELEGATE HENRY CABOT LODGE AT THE SOUTH VIETNAM DELEGATE BOTH CRITICISED THE RECENT COMMUNIST BOMBINGS AND RAIDS ON SOUTH VIETNAM.

    THE ATTACKS AND COUNTER-ATTACKS CAME AT THE SIXTH SESSION OF THE VIETNAM PEACE TALKS, AFTER THE CHIEF U.S. NEGOTIATOR, MR. LODGE, AND THE SAIGON DELEGATE, MR PHAM DANG LAM, HAD DENOUNCED THE CURRENT WAVE OF "INDISCRIMINATE" SHELLING OF TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN SOUTH VIETNAM. MR LODGE, SPEAKING AT TODAY'S 5-AND-A-HALF HOUR SESSION, SAID THAT THE SHELLING COMPLICATED THE TASK OF THE PEACE NEGOTIATORS, WHO HAVE REPORTED NO PROGRESS IN THE NEARLY SIX WEEKS SINCE THE NIXON-APPOINTED TEAM ARRIVED IN PARIS.
