    HANOI'S CHIEF NEGOTIATOR TO THE VIETNAM PEACE TALKS, MR. XUAN THUY, SAID TODAY THAT AMERICA?

  • Description


    DELEGATES AT TABLE, XUAN THUY SPEAKING (VIETNAMESE SOUND ON FILM)



    TRANSCRIPT: THUY: "NOW, AFTER NINE MEETINGS, THE TALKS WHICH HAVE LASTED OVER A MONTH, HAVE GOT NOWHERE. THE REASON IS THAT THE AMERICAN PARTY HAS WILFULLY SOUGHT TO SUBSTITUTE BLACK FOR WHITE.... FALSEHOOD FOR TRUTH. THE U.S.A. HAVE VIOLATED ALL THE 1954 GENEVA AGREEMENTS ON VIETNAM BUT THEY ACCUSE THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM OF HAVING VIOLATED THE SAID AGREEMENTS. THEY HAVE CONDUCTED AND AGGRESSION WAR AGAINST VIETNAM BUT THEY CLAIM THAT NORTH VIETNAM HAS ATTACKED SOUTH VIETNAM."



    "THE AMERICAN SIDE REFUSES TO CEASE, UNCONDITIONALLY, THE BOMBARDMENTS OVER THE WHOLE OF THE TERRITORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM, FOR WHICH THEY REQUIRE RECIPROCOCITY."



    "WE HAVE, ON MANY OCCASIONS, AFFIRMED OUR GOODWILL AND OUR SERIOUS ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE PARIS TALKS. SHOULD THEY KEEP MAKING NO PROGRESS, THE AMERICAN SIDE WILL BEAR THE WHOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT."
