    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 7. MONSIEUR SOUQUIERE: "...(INDISTINCT).. ALL OBSTACLES, THE OPENING OF THE CONFERENCE OF THE FOUR AND OF VIETNAM...(INDISTINCT).. A GOVERNMENT HARDLY CAPABLE OF...(INDISTINCT).. GAINING TERRITORY. THERE IS NO FORCE IN EXISTENCE CAPABLE OF MAKING IT UNFIT FOR DISCUSSION.



    "THE AMERICANS.. (indistinct).. FOR THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE; THEY ARE CONSTANTLY SEEKING NEW FORMS OF NEO-COLONIALISM. BUT IT IS EVER MORE VIDENT THAT THEIR DEPARTURE FROM VIETNAM IS THE ONLY POSSIBLE SOLUTION. AMERICAN AGGRESSION MUST STOP. THE U.S. TROOPS MUST RETIRE. THIS IS A DEMAND THAT WE MUST FORMULATE SIDE BY SIDE WITH PEACE-LOVING AMERICAN FORCES, AT THE VERY MOMENT WHEN NIXON, THE NEW U.S. PRESIDENT TAKES POWER. THE PARIS CONFERENCE MUST OPEN NOW. WE CONGRATULATE ALL... (INDISTINCT)... OBTAINED. I AM, MOREOVER, CONFIDENT THAT THE PLACE OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT OF SOUTH VIETNAM IS INCONTESTABLE."
