    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 7: WILLIAM PORTER: "Well, I want to greet all you gentlemen. I suppose we will be seeing each other fairly often. Today you might say that I have sniffed the atmosphere a little bit, and found it a little complicated. Other than that, I do not have anything at present."

    Background: The deadlocked Vietnam peace talks resumed in Paris on Thursday, after a two week halt.

    William Porter, the new United States chief negotiator and successor to Ambassador David Bruce, called for a fresh outlook by both sides in the talks. He hoped the Communists would consider his arrival as a chance to make progress towards a peaceful settlement.

    President Nixon, he said, placed a high priority on finding a negotiated settlement to the Vietnam situation.

    Fifty-seven-year-old Mr. Porter said a few words to reporters on leaving his first session with North Vietnamese negotiator Xuan Thuy and the Vietcong's Madame Binh.
