    TRANSCRIPT: PHAM DANG LAM: "WE ARE LANDING TODAY WITH CONFIDENCE IN THE FRENCH LAND, WHICH FOR US IS NOT FOREIGN TERRITORY, TO REPRESENT THE ELECTED, LEGAL AND LAWFUL GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM AND THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE PEOPLE TO THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS. WE DID NOT COME HERE SOONER TO ATTEND THE MEETING SCHEDULED FOR THE 6TH OF NOVEMBER AS PART OF THE TALKS BETWEEN THE U.S. AND NORTH VIETNAM BECAUSE ON THE ONE HAND THOSE EXPLORATORY TALKS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED AS TERMINATED WITH THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE BOMBING OF NORTH VIETNAM. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE TERMS OF ANOTHER CONFERENCE HAD NOT YET BEEN DEFINED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO MAKE THE PARTICIPATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM POSSIBLE."
