  • Description

    The United States Secretary of State, William Rogers made an appeal for reconciliation with North Vietnam when he spoke on aid proposals to the region at a press conference in Washington on Thursday (February 15). He acknowledge that it would be difficult to persuade Congress to vote for aid for Indochina when domestic problems remained unsolved. But Congressmen, he believed, would in the end act responsibly.

    Before the peace settlement, President Nixon spoke of the possibility of providing 2,500 million dollars (1,000 million sterling) to North Vietnam as part of an aid plan for Indochina.

    Further indication of the President's intention to seek funds from Congress were revealed in the joint US-North Vietnamese communique released after Dr. Henry Kissinger's talks in Hanoi. The extent of Congressional support for, or opposition to, aid for Indochina is expected to become clearer next Wednesday when Mr. Rogers is scheduled to testify on the peace settlement to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    SYNOPSIS: The United States Secretary of State Mr. William Rogers told a Washington press conference on Thursday that he hoped Congress would approve aid to help reconstruct North Vietnam and areas of Indochina devastated by war.
