  • Description

    The North Vietnamese Delegation to the Paris "peace talks", on Monday (May 4), accused President Nixon of breaking an American commitment to stop bombing North Vietnam. They warned that this seriously affected the talks.

    At a Press Conference, called on Monday (May 4), the North Vietnamese spokesman Mr. Nguyen Than Lee underlined the accusation but gave no indication how his Government would react. Mr. Lee said more than 100 American aircraft had penetrated deep into North Vietnam in the last three days, bombing populated areas.

    Mr. Lee had already warned, at a Press conference last Friday (May 1), that President Nixon's decision to send U.S. troops into Cambodia would have a bed influence on the Paris talks.

    However, another North Vietnamese official said on Monday (May 4) that he expected his delegation to attend the next session of the talks, scheduled for Wednesday (May 6).

    North Vietnam and the Vietcong agreed to open exploratory negotiations in Paris in response to President Johnson's commitment to stop bombing North Vietnam in November 1968.
