  • Description

    WHILE SPECULATION ON A POSSIBLE MEETING BETWEEN U THANT AND NORTH VIETNAMESE DIPLOMATS FOCUSED ON RANGOON, THE UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY GENERAL YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) ARRIVED IN THE BURMESE RESORT OF SANDOWNY TO CONTINUE HIS HOLIDAY BY THE SEASIDE.

    U THANT HAS STILL MADE NO COMMENT ON REPORTERS THAT HE WILL MEET NORTH VIETNAMESE OFFICIALS IN BURMA BEFORE HE LEAVES TOMORROW (SATURDAY).

    THIS FILM WAS SHOT BY VISNEWS STAFF CAMERAMAN, TONY GREEN, THE FIRST FOREIGN NEWSFILM AGENCY CAMERAMAN TO BE GRANTED A VISA TO FILM FREELY IN BURMA FOR MANY YEARS.

    THE UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL IS ON A ONE-WEEK HOLIDAY IN HIS NATIVE BURMA. HE IS DUE TO RETURN TO NEW YORK AND THE UNITED NATIONS ON SUNDAY.

    IN RANGOON, A GROUP OF SENIOR NORTH VIETNAMESE OFFICIALS WHO ARRIVED IN THE BURMESE CAPITAL EARLY THIS WEEK, ARE STILL AT THE NORTH VIETNAMESE CONSULATE THERE.

    SO FAR, U THANT HAS DECLINED TO COMMENT ON REPORTS THAT HE MAY MEET THEM, BUT SAID YESTERDAY: "IF THINGS WARRANT, I MAY SAY SOMETHING BEFORE MY DEPARTURE FOR NEW YORK."
    AT SANDOWNY, U THANT RELAXED WITH FRIENDS AND LATER WENT SWIMMING IN THE SEA -- EVIDENTLY ENJOYING HIS CHIEF TIME AWAY FROM THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS.
