  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES DIPLOMATIC PEACE OFFENSIVE FOR VIETNAM HAS BEEN CARRIED INTO SOUTH VIETNAM ITSELF WITH THE ARRIVAL THERE OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE, MR. DEAN RUSK, AND PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S PEACE ENVOY, MR. AVERILL HARRIMAN. MEANWHILE, ALTHOUGH THE BOMBING OF NORTH VIETNAM TARGETS REMAINS SUSPENDED (SINCE CHRISTMAS), HARD-HITTING STRIKES AGAINST VIET CONG IN SOUTH VIETNAM'S MOKING DELTA AREA CONTINUE.

    AS THE UNITED STATES CONTINUED ITS EFFORTS TO FIND A DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION TO THE CONFLICT, THE SOVIET UNION ANNOUNCED (14 JAN.) THAT IT HAD PROMISED NORTH VIETNAM EXTRA AID AND FULL BACKING AGAINST "AMERICAN AGGRESSION." MR. RUSK AND MR. HARRIMAN ARE IN SAIGON TO BRIEF GOVERNMENT LEADERS ON THEIR EFFORTS SO FAR.

    IN THE BATTLEFIELD, SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT AND U.S. FORCES CONTINUE THEIR CURRENT ALL-OUT OFFENSIVE AGAINST THE VIET CONG. AT THE SAME TIME, BOTH SIDES ARE ANTICIPATING A CEASE FIRE OVER THE VIETNAMESE NEW YEAR PERIOD NEXT WEEK - SIMILAR TO THAT OBSERVED DURING CHRISTMAS. THE CLANDESTINE VIET CONG RADIO HAS BROADCAST AN ORDER TO ITS FORCES TO CEASE FIRE FOR FOUR DAYS.
