    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 3: INTERPRETER: "THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION SPEAKS VOLUBLY OF A SEARCH FOR PEACE IN VIETNAM. WHILE THE TRUTH IS THAT IT CONTINUES TO COMMIT ACTS ATTEMPTING AGAINST THE SOVEREIGNTY AND THE SECURITY OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM THROUGH THE RECONNAISSANCE FLIGHTS OVER THE WHOLE OF NORTH VIETNAM AND THROUGH THE BOMBINGS, EVEN WITH B-52S, AGAINST CERTAIN REGIONS BETWEEN THE 17TH AND 19TH PARALLEL. IN SOUTH VIETNAM THE AMERICAN AGGRESSORS MULTIPLY THEIR RADIO OF B 52s WITHOUT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE SURROUNDINGS OF SAIGON AND OTHER REGIONS OF ??? POPULATION. IN CONSEQUENCE, WE HEATEDLY SUPPORT THE NEW OFFENSIVES OF THE ARMED FORCES OF LIBERATION AND OF THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH VIETNAM THAT ARE BEING CARRIED OUT THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SOUTH VIETNAMESE TERRITORY SINCE THE 23RD OF FEBRUARY OF 1969 - CAUSING GRAVE LOSSES TO THE AMERICAN PUPPETS AND ALSO PUSHING THEM BACK WITH A PASSIVE RESISTANCE. THESE OFFENSIVES PROVE THAT THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT OF SOUTH VIETNAM ALWAYS MAINTAINS THE DRIVE OF ITS VICTORIES AND THE INITIATIVE IN ALL THE FIELDS OF OPERATION IN SOUTH VIETNAM. THE UNITED STATES IS DELIBERATELY ATTEMPTING TO CONVINCE PUBLIC OPINION THAT THERE IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM AND THE UNITED STATES ON THE CONDITIONS FOR A CESSATION OF AMERICAN BOMBINGS AGAINST NORTH VIETNAM, AT THE 6TH SESSION OF THE PARIS CONFERENCE ON VIETNAM WE ONCE MORE DECLARED CLEARLY THAT THE CESSATION OF AMERICAN BOMBINGS ON THE WHOLE OF THE TERRITORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM IS COMPLETELY UNCONDITIONAL."
