    Q. "WHAT IS YOUR GOVERNMENT'S ATTITUDE TO THE COMMONWEALTH PRIME MINISTERS' OFFER TO MEDIATE TO END THE FIGHTING IN VIETNAM?"



    A. "I THINK MY GOVERNMENT WELCOMES ALL EFFORTS TO END THIS AGGRESSION"



    Q. "SIR, RECENTLY YOU SAID THAT SOUTH VIETNAM MUST LIBERATE NORTH VIETNAM FROM COMMUNISM. BY THIS STATEMENT DID YOU ENVISAGE ON ALL OUT INVASION OF NORTH VIETNAM?"



    A. "YOU'RE SPEAKING OF INVASION BY FORCE. IT IS NOT THE TIME YET TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS. BUT I THINK THAT MOST OF THE NORTH VIETNAMESE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING FROM THE WAR TOO, AND I AM SURE THAT MOST OF THEM SUFFER UNDER THE COMMUNIST REGIME. SO WHEN I SPEAK ABOUT LIBERATION AT THE PRESENT TIME I MEANT LIBERATION OF THE NORTH VIETNAMESE PEOPLE FROM THE DOMINATION OF THE COMMUNIST NORTH VIETNAM."



    Q. "HOW WOULD YOU PLAN TO ACCOMPLISH IT? BY INCREASED AIR RAIDS ON THE NORTH, OR GREATER AIR ACTIVITY IN THE NORTH?"



    A. "YES, IN THE FIRST STEP BY INCREASING AIR RAIDS. MORE AIR RAIDS DAY AND NIGHT."



    Q. "YOU SAID RECENTLY, I UNDERSTAND, THAT YOU ALSO PLAN TO FORM A YOUTH GROUP FOR THE LIBERATION OF NORTH VIETNAM.. HOW WOULD THIS BE USED?"



    A. "I MEANT MANY YOUNG PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY PEOPLE FROM THE NORTH VIETNAM, MANY OF THEM CAME TO ME AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY'RE READY TO VOLUNTEER TO GO NORTH TO LIBERATE THEIR HOMETOWNS, THEIR HOME CITIES."



    Q. "IF IN FACT THESE PEOPLE WERE USED THEY WOULD BE USED AS AGENTS GOING BACK INTO THEIR OWN CITIES AS AGENTS?"



    A. "YES, AND THE GOVERNMENT OF SOUTH VIETNAM WILL HELP THEM."
