  • Description

    The Leading North Vietnamese negotiator at the Paris Peace Talks, Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, commented in Paris on Saturday(16 Dec) about the recent breakdown in the peace negotiations.

    In an interview with reporter Bernard Kaplan of the National Broadcasting Corporation, Madame Binh said that the government of North Vietnam had not had "any concrete proof -- real proof" that the Untied States wanted to end of war in Vietnam on a "reasonable and fair" basis. She also claimed that the Untied State was attempting "secretly to modify the text of the agreement that has been reached."
    Madame Binh was replying to similar accusations made against herself and her fellow negotiators by U.S. Presidential Security Advisor Dr. Henry Kissinger.

    Soon after his return from the halted Paris talks, Dr. Kissinger told a press conference in Washington that the talks had failed to reach a "just and fair" settlement of the war. He also claimed that final agreement had been thwarted by the way Hanoi had withdrawn or changed earlier under standings, and had constantly raised new problems.
