  • Description

    IN A STATEMENT ISSUED TODAY (WEDNESDAY) AT A PRESS CONFERENCE IN PARIS, MR. NGUYEN THANH LE, SPOKESMAN FOR THE NORTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATION AT THE PARIS PEACE TALKS, SAID THAT THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT MUST BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FAILURE TO HOLD THE ENLARGED MEETING SCHEDULED FOR TODAY (WEDNESDAY).

    BUT, IN SPITE OF THE SHARPNESS OF HIS ATTACK, MR. THANH LE STOPPED SHORT OF SAYING THAT THE UNITED STATES HAD VIOLATED THE UNDERSTANDING WHICH LED TO THE BOMBING HALT. HE ADDED THAT THE UNITED STATES HAD TOLD THE NORTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATION THAT BECAUSE OF THE ABSENCE OF A SOUTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATION, THE ENLARGED CONFERENCE COULD NOT BE HELD TODAY.

    MR. THANH LE ALSO SAID THAT THE UNITED STATES WAS CONTINUING WHAT HE CALLED "ACTS OF FORCE" OVER NORTH VIETNAM BY OPERATING RECONNAISSANCE FLIGHTS AND BY INTENSIFYING BOMBING IN CERTAIN AREAS.

    AMERICAN OFFICIALS SAY THAT THE AGREEMENT TO STOP BOMBING SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED RECONNAISSANCE FLIGHTS. THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT HAS REFUSED TO ATTEND THE TALKS UNLESS THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT, POLITICAL ARM OF THE VIETCONG, MERGES WITH THE HANOI DELEGATION.
