    Background: THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ENVOY, MR. CYRUS VANCE, MET PRESIDENT CHUNG-HEE PARK IN SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, YESTERDAY (12 FEBRUARY) FOR TALKS ON NORTH KOREAN PROVOCATIONS, REGARDED AS A GRACE THREAT TO THE SOUTH. THE TALKS FOLLOW SOUTH KOREA'S CALL FOR MORE ARMS AND A FIRMER AMERICAN ATTITUDE IN MEETING POSSIBLE NORTH KOREAN THREATS.

    ALSO IN ATTENDANCE AT THE BLUE MANSION DISCUSSIONS WERE THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO SOUTH KOREA, MR. PORTER, AND GENERAL BONESTEEL, THE UNITED NATIONS COMMANDING OFFICER IN THE AREA. REPRESENTING THE SOUTH KOREANS WERE PREMIER IL-KWON CHUNG, FOREIGN MINISTER CHOI, AND DEFENCE MINISTER KIM.

    A PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESMAN ANNOUNCED AFTER THE MORNING MEETING THAT BOTH SIDES HAD EXPLAINED THEIR BASIC ATTITUDES TO THE SEIZURE OF THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE SHIP 'PUEBLO' AND THE INTRUSION OF 31 NORTH KOREAN SOLDIERS WHO ATTEMPTED TO ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT PARK LAST MONTH.

    UNOFFICIAL REPORTS STATED THAT THE UNITED STATES HAD ASSURED PRESIDENT PARK OF UNITED STATES SUPPORT IN WHATEVER HAPPENED IN SOUTH KOREA. THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN DISTURBED BECAUSE IT FELT THE U.S. HAD BEEN PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH SECURING THE RELEASE OF THE 'PUEBLO' AND HAD NOT GIVEN SUFFICIENT ATTENTION TO INTRUSIONS INTO THE SOUTH. TODAY (TUESDAY) MR. VANCE CONTINUED HIS EFFORTS TO SMOOTH DIFFERENCES IN A TWO-HOUR CONFERENCE WITH PRIME MINISTER IL-KWON CHUNG.
