  • Description

    The chief Viet Cong negotiator at the Paris peace talks, Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, yesterday (Thursday) accused President Nixon of insincerity in his announcement that the rate of withdrawal of American troops in Vietnam would be increased, thus shortening the war. Commenting to reporters on Mr Nixon's speech of last Wednesday, Mme Binh said his refusal to fix a deadline for complete withdrawal showed he had not yet decided to end the war. The question of prisoners, she said, was a manoeuvre.

    The talks, which resumed after a three-week suspension, also brought a proposal from Saigon for long-term prisoners to be exchanged or sent to a neutral country.
