  • Description

    The North Vietnamese Politburo member negotiating in the Vietnam peace talks in paris, Le Duc Tho, said on Friday (May 12) that his country was confident of continuing Soviet support. He also rejected the latest proposal for a cease-fire in south-east Asia by President Nixon of the United States.

    Mr. Nixon's call was made on May 8, when he announced the current mine-blockade of North Vietnamese ports. The mines are reckoned to be too sophisticated to be defused by North Vietnamese forces, but the Soviet Union is recognised by Western military powers to have experts skilled enough to possibly do the job.
