  • Description

    United States Secretary of State William Rogers hold his first news conference for several months on Monday (20 August) in the State Department Building in Washington.

    He replied to correspondents' questions on a number of topics, among them the ceasefire in Vietnam. His optimism on this subject surprised some reporters.

    Mr. Rogers also announced the U.S. had been officially informed that Iran had agreed to join the international Commission for Control and Supervision (ICCS) in Vietnam, replacing Canada, which withdrew its contingent last month.

    Mr. Rogers said he was generally encouraged with progress towards peace in South Vietnam. He maintained the U.S. had not been involved in any direct negotiations with leaders of the Khmer Republic since the August 15th bombing halt. But he added that the U.S. was engaged in active diplomatic contacts with parties interested in the situation.
