  • Description

    United States President richard Nixon suspended the bombing and shelling of North Vietnam and the mining of its coastline on Monday (15 Jan). Mr. Nixon's order was announced by his press spokesman, Mr. Ronald Ziegler, following progress made in peace negotiations in Paris between Dr. Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho of North Vietnam.

    Mr. Ziegler told newsmen at Key Biscayne, Florida, that Dr. Kissinger would be returning to Paris 'in the relatively near future' presumably for a final round of talks with Mr. Tho. Diplomatic observers in Washington believe it was extremely unlikely that Mr. Nixon would have taken such a step without good indications that it could help away North Vietnam into agreeing on a ceasefire accord.

    This item consists of Mr. Ziegler's announcement of the bombing halt.

    SYNOPSIS: Presidential spokesman Ronald Ziegler announced on Monday President Nixon's decision to stop the bombing and shelling of North Vietnam.
