  • Description

    THE LEADERS OF THE U.S. AND NORTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATIONS TO THE PARIS PEACE TALKS TODAY (FRIDAY) PAID SEPARATE VISITS TO THE FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER, M. MAURICE COUVE DE MURVILLE. FIRST TO ARRIVE WAS THE AMERICAN SPECIAL ENVOY, MR. AVERELL HARRIMAN, WHO WAS REPORTED TO BE DISAPPOINTED AT THE DELAY IN BEGINNING SUBSTANTIVE TALKS. U.S. OFFICIALS SAID HE FLEW INTO PARIS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) READY TO LAUNCH INTO SUBSTANTIVE TALKS TODAY BUT, INSTEAD, THE DEPUTY LEADERS OF THE TWO DELEGATIONS MET PRIVATELY TO WORK OUT PROCEDURES AND TECHNICAL DETAILS.

    AFTER THE AMERICAN DIPLOMAT HAD LEFT THE FOREIGN MINISTRY, MR. XUAN THUY, THE NORTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATION LEADER CALLED ON M. COUVE DE MURVILLE.

    MR. HARRIMAN TOLD REPORTERS THAT NO ISSUES OF SUBSTANCE WERE DISCUSSED BUT THE NORTH VIETNAMESE WAS REPORTED TO HAVE POINTED OUT THAT THE AMERICANS SEEMED TO HAVE GREATER OVERALL ADVANTAGES.

    THE AMERICANS ADMIT THAT THEY ENJOY SUPERIOR OPERATIONAL CONDITIONS BUT SAY THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO STOP THE NORTH VIETNAMESE RENTING BETTER AND BIGGER ACCOMMODATION AND PRESS FACILITIES. ThE U.S. HAS A LARGE EMBASSY IN THE CENTRE OF PARIS, WITH IT'S OWN PRESS AUDITORIUM AND HAS ALSO HIRED A SPECIAL PRESS CENTRE IN THE LUXURY CRILLON HOTEL, WHERE MR. HARRIMAN IS STAYING. ThE NORTH VIETNAMESE, ON THE OTHER HAND, OCCUPY RELATIVELY MODEST ACCOMMODATION ON THE LEFT BANK OF THE SEINE.
