  • Description

    Senior Hanoi Politburo member Le Duc Tho arrive in Paris on Sunday (30 April) in a new attempt to find a negotiated settlement of the Vietnam problem as the communist offensive in South Vietnam pushed on relentlessly. And in a press conference, Mr. The accused President Nixon of concealing American aggression In Vietnam to "fool" American and world opinion.

    During the press conference, Mr. Tho was accompanied by chief Hanoi negotiator at the Paris peace talks, Xuan Thuy, and Mrs. Nguysn Thi Binh, chief Viet Cong negotiator.

    It's reported that Mr. Tho's presence in Paris signals Hanoi's readiness for high-level negotiations. Last year, he had secret talks with Henry Kissinger, President Nixon's national security advisor. Mr. Tho reportedly indicated that he intended to resume the secret talks with Dr. Kissinger to the point where they broke off last October.

    In October, the Americans made a private move to reach a settlement, but before the scheduled meeting, the North Vietnamese said Mr. Tho was ill and suggested instead that Dr. Kissinger meet Mr. Thuy. But the talks were then called off.

    An English translation of Mr. Tho's statement is included. This film also includes natural sound.
