  • Description

    DJAKARTA IS ONE OF THE ASIAN CITIES LISTED BY THE UNITED STATES AS A POSSIBLE VENUE FOR PRELIMINARY TALKS WITH NORTH VIETNAM...... AND REJECTED BY HANGI.

    THE NORTH VIETNAMESE FOREIGN MINISTRY SAID YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) THAT IT REJECTED BOTH THE SITES SUGGESTED BY WASHINGTON, AND THE CONDITIONS WHICH THE AMERICANS SAY MUST GOVERN THE CHOICE OF A SITE.

    NORTH VIETNAM IS NOW INSISTING THE MEETING SHOULD BE IN WARSAW, WHICH THE UNITED STATES HAS REJECTED. DJAKARTA MEETS MANY OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR TALKS. BOTH SIDES HAVE EMBASSIES IN THE CITY.... NORTH VIETNAM'S AMBASSADOR IS MR. PHAM BINH, AND THE U.S. IS REPRESENTED BY MR. MARSHALL GREEN. THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT, THE POLITICAL ARM OF THE VIET CONG, ALSO MAINTAINS A SMALL LIAISON MISSION IN DJAKARTA.

    THE CITY HAS A BIG NEW CONFERENCE HALL, STARTED BY FORMER PRESIDENT SUKHARNO FOR HIS PLANNED CONFERENCE OF THE NEW EMERGING FORCES. ONE DRAWBACK IS POOR COMMUNICATIONS... PRESIDENT JOHNSON HAS SAID THAT WHEREVER THE TWO SIDES MEET THERE MUST BE ADEQUATE FACILITIES FOR NEWS COVERAGE, AND THE INDONESIAN CAPITAL WOULD PROBABLY BE UNABLE TO HANDLE THE NEWSPAPER, TELEVISION AND AGENCY REPRESENTATIVES WHO'D COVER ANY PEACE TALKS.
