  • Description

    GENERAL NGUYEN VAN THIEU, THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN SOUTH VIETNAM'S FORTHCOMING ELECTIONS, FLEW INTO THE COASTAL TOWN OF TUY HOA, ABOUT 200 MILES NORTH EAST OF SAIGON WHERE HE MET SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS AND INSPECTED CAPTURED ARMS.

    GENERAL THIEU, WHO IS HEAD OF STATE, WAS WELCOMED ON HIS ARRIVAL BY GENERAL MYUNG SHIN, COMMANDER OF THE SOUTH KOREAN FORCES IN VIETNAM.

    GENERAL KY INSPECTED THE SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS BEFORE GOING ON TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH THE REFUGEES. HE TOURED THE TOWN'S RESETTLEMENT CAMP AND LATER PRESENTED THE REFUGEES WITH FOOD PARCELS.

    LAST WEEK GENERAL THIEU AND PRIME MINISTER NGUYEN CAO KY DEFEATED AN ATTEMPT BY THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TO DISQUALIFY THE M FROM THE SEPTEMBER ELECTIONS.

    THE TWO GOVERNMENT LEADERS WILL NOW RUN FOR THE OFFICES OF PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT. THEY FACE OPPOSITION FROM TEN SIMILAR TEAMS OF CIVILIANS AND THE OPPOSITION INCLUDES A FORMER HEAD OF STATE AND A FORMER PRIME MINISTER.

    THE REFUGEES LIVING IN THE RESETTLEMENT CAMP HAVE BEEN EVACUATED FROM THEIR VILLAGES BY SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS. MANY OF THEM WERE BROUGHT FROM THEIR VILLAGES WITH ONLY THE CLOTHES THEY WERE WEARING. BEHIND THEM THE VILLAGES WERE DESTROYED IN CASE THEY SHOULD BE USED BY THE VIET CONG.

    MASSIVE RELIEF PROGRAMMES HAVE HAD TO BE MOUNTED TO HOUSE, FEED AND CLOTHE THE DISPLACED REFUGEES. IN MOST OF THE RESETTLEMENT CAMPS MARKETS HAVE BEEN OPENED BY THE SOUTH KOREANS WHERE REFUGEES CAN BUY FOOD. BUT MOST OF THE FOOD THEY EAT IS PROVIDED BY THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE AUTHORITIES.
