  • Description

    A SPOKESMAN FOR THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT OF SOUTH VIETNAM -- THE POLITICAL ARM OF THE VIET CONG -- SAID YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IN A PRESS CONFERENCE THAT PRESIDENT NGUYEN VAN THIEU WAS A PUPPET IN THE HANDS OF THE UNITED STATES. HE WAS SPEAKING OF SOUTH VIETNAM'S LATEST PEACE PROPOSALS, SAYING THAT THEY WERE MADE ON AMERICAN ORDERS. SOUTH VIETNAMESE PRESIDENT THIEU RECENTLY MADE THE PROPOSALS. THE PRESS CONFERENCE WAS HELD IN PARIS.

    THE SPOKESMAN SAID IN ADDITION THAT THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE WERE PROMPTED BY THE AMERICANS TO REPEAT THE SAME ALLEGATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE FOR MONTHS, ALLEGATIONS THAT THE N.L.F. HAVE ALWAYS REJECTED.

    HE WAS COMMENTING ON THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE SIX-POINT PEACE PLAN, INCLUDING THE WITHDRAWAL OF ALL NORTH VIETNAMESE TROOPS AND SETTING UP OF AN INTERNATIONAL CONTROL SYSTEM. THE PLAN WAS OUTLINED BY PRESIDENT THIEU. AN OFFER ON GENERAL ELECTIONS WAS MADE BY MR PHAM DANG LAM, WHO HEADS THE SAIGON TEAM AT THE PARIS PEACE TALKS.

    IN HIS STATEMENT, THE N.L.F. SPOKESMAN ALSO SAID THAT PRESIDENT THIEU, WHOM DESCRIBED AS A SPOKESMAN OF THE UNITED STATES AND A LEADER OF TRAITORS, HAS CONTINUOUSLY SLANDERED THE SACRED RESISTENCE OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE PEOPLE IN ORDER TO COVER UP TRUE FACES OF AMERICAN AGGRESSION AND OF THE SAIGON ADMINISTRATION.
