    Background: THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. TRAN VAN DO, ARRIVED IN PARIS TODAY (TUESDAY) FROM SAIGON AND SAID HIS GOVERNMENT WAS READY TO CONDUCT PEACE TALKS ON VIETNAM -- BUT 'THIS DEPENDED ON HANOI'. DR. TRAN WAS MAKING A SIX-HOUR STOPOVER IN PARIS ON HIS WAY TO LIBERIA.

    THERE HAD BEEN SPECULATION THAT THE MINISTER'S VISIT MIGHT BE A PEACE MISSION, AS NORTH VIETNAM HAS A MISSION IN PARIS. BUT DR. TRAN SAID HIS TRIP WAS NOT CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH PEACE TALKS ON VIETNAM.

    SPEAKING IN FRENCH TO REPORTERS AT ORLY AIRPORT, DR. TRAN SAID THAT IT WAS TOO EARLY TO JUDGE IF THERE WAS ANY CHANCE OF PEACE AFTER THE TALKS BETWEEN PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND POPE PAUL.

    HE SAID THAT HIS STOPOVER WAS SIMPLY A TECHNICAL ONE, AND THAT HE WAS STOPPING IN VARIOUS CAPITALS ON HIS WAY TO AFRICA. DR. TRAN SAID THAT HIS GOVERNMENT WAS ALWAYS READY TO TALK WITH NORTH VIETNAM, BUT EVERYTHING DEPENDED ON HANOI, WHICH KEPT SILENT.
