    REPRESENTATIVES OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT (N.L.F.) TODAY (WEDNESDAY) HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE?

  • Description

    REPRESENTATIVES OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT (N.L.F.) TODAY (WEDNESDAY) HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE IN PARIS AT WHICH THEIR SPOKESMAN CALLED FOR THE SWIFT CONVENING OF A THREE-SIDED CONFERENCE IF SAIGON PERSISTED IN ITS REFUSAL TO TAKE PART.

    TONIGHT, UNITED STATES OFFICIALS SAID THEY WERE STILL PLANNING FOR ENLARGED VIETNAM PEACE TALKS IN THE HOPE AND EXPECTATION THAT THE SAIGON GOVERNMENT WOULD ATTEND. THEY ALSO CONFIRMED THAT THEIR CONTACTS WITH THE NORTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATION WERE CONTINUES, BUT DECLINED TO GIVE DETAILS.

    THE SAIGON GOVERNMENT REJECTS ANY ARRANGEMENT WHICH ENABLES THE N.L.F. TO PRESENT ITSELF AS AN INDEPENDENT PARTY TO THE TALKS AND SAYS THE FRONT SHOULD BE PART OF AN HANOI DELEGATION. NORTH VIETNAM AND THE N.L.F. INSIST THAT WASHINGTON AND HANOI REACHED AN UNDERSTANDING THAT THE NEW PHASE OF THE TALKS - FOLLOWING THE HALT TO AMERICAN BOMBING OF NORTH VIETNAM - ALLOWS FOR FOUR INDEPENDENT AND EQUAL DELEGATIONS.

    THE FULL TALKS HAD BEEN EXPECTED TO START LAST WEDNESDAY, BUT FOLLOWING SAIGON'S REFUSAL TO ATTEND THEY WERE POSTPONED AT AMERICA'S REQUEST.

    THE SOUND SECTION ON THIS FILM IS THE INTERPRETATION INTO FRENCH OF THE SECTION OF THE N.L.F. SPOKESMAN'S ADDRESS IN WHICH HE DEMANDED A THREE-SIDED CONFERENCE AND SAID AMERICA MUST TAKE THE BLAME FOR THE DELAY BECAUSE THE SAIGON ADMINISTRATION HAD BEEN SET UP BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.
