    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 1. INTERVIEWER: "DOCTOR, DO YOU FEEL THIS CONFERENCE OF THE SEVEN VIETNAM ALLIES WILL SUPPLY ANY NEW FORMULA FOR AN HONOURABLE PEACE IN SOUTH VIETNAM?"



    KHOMAN: "I THINK THE SEVEN NATION MEETING IS MEANT FOR REVIEWING THE SITUATION DURING THE PAST YEAR OR SO SINCE THE LAST MEETING BECAUSE OUR NATIONS - THE SEVEN NATIONS - HAVE CONTRIBUTED TROOPS TO HALT AGGRESSION IN VIETNAM, WE HAVE DEEP INTERESTS IN DEVELOPMENTS IN THAT COUNTRY. BUT I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT PROPOSALS OR SUGGESTIONS HAVE ALREADY BEEN MADE BY THE MAIN PARTIES CONCERNED IN THE VIETNAM WAR, NAMELY BY SOUTH VIETNAM BY PRESIDENT THIEU AND ALSO BY THE UNITED STATES, THE RECENT STATEMENT MADE BY PRESIDENT NIXON OF THE UNITED STATES. ALL THESE PROPOSALS AND SUGGESTIONS CONTAIN VERY IMPORTANT ELEMENTS, AND I WOULD SAY THAT THESE ARE POSITIVE ELEMENTS WHICH MAY BE CONDUCTIVE TO A SETTLEMENT OF THE WAR. IN OUR OPINION THESE SUGGESTIONS AND PROPOSALS CONTAIN CONCRETE EVIDENCE OF A DESIRE FOR PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT BY THE TWO MAIN PARTIES TO THE WAR IN THE VIETNAM."
