  • Description

    South Vietnam's President Nguyen Van Thieu has rejected outside pressure to accept a peace settlement in Vietnam, claiming his country's rights of self-determination must be Respected.

    President Thieu was speaking at a joint session of the South Vietnamese National Assembly on Tuesday (12 December).

    The President, maintaining his uncompromising tone against provisions of the draft North Vietnamese-United States peace agreement revealed last October, said South Vietnam's destiny must be determined by its people alone.

    SYNOPSIS: In Saigon, President Nguyen Van Thieu told South Vietnam's National Assembly his people's rights of self-determination must be respected in any peace settlement with North Vietnam.

    After honouring the war dead, the President, speaking in Vietnamese, told members of the Assembly and a number of Ambassadors in the gallery his country's terms for a ceasefire.
