  • Description

    Canada's Minister of External Affairs, Mr. Mitchell Sharp, said on Thursday (25 January) in Washington that he wasn't keen on Canada serving for more than 60 days on the force set up to supervise the ceasefire in Vietnam.

    Under the terms of the 'International Control Commission', Canada is required to send an advance party of men to South Vietnam immediately. They are due to stay there with other peace-keeping forces from Indonesia, Poland and Hungary until troop withdrawals are over - within 60 days. The supervisory force will total 1,160 men, of which Canada will provide 288.

    Mr. Sharp told newsmen in Washington after a meeting with the U.S. Secretary of State, Mr. Rogers, that Canada would certainly take part in the force. But he also made it clear that he had reservations about the commission working because of experience with the pervious one.

    SYNOPSIS: Canada's External Affairs Minister, Mr. Sharp, told a news conference in Washington on Thursday that he still had some doubts about the newly-formed International Peace-keeping force in Vietnam.
