    KISSINGER: "We met for some 30 hours. There will be another ten hours of technical meeting between Ambassador Sullivan and Minister Thach. The purpose of the meeting was to bring about a swift implementation of the Paris agreement. The meetings were conducted in a constructive and positive manner. Significant progress was made. Ambassador Sullivan is now in Saigon, to discuss the results with the government of South Vietnam. I'm returning to Washington, to report to the President. Mr. Le Duc Tho and I will meet again on June 6th. We have every intention of concluding our discussion within the next series of meetings. That is all I have to say, and the North Vietnamese will be prepared to confirm this. Thank you.
