    MR. BUNKER, AGED 72, SUCCEEDED MR. HENRY CABOT-LODGE, WHO HAS RETURNED TO THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE UP THE POST OF AMBASSADOR AT LARGE.

    THE PRESENTATION CEREMONY WAS HELD AT THE INDEPENDENT PALACE IN SAIGON.

    IN A STATEMENT, MR. BUNKER SAID THAT HANOI SHOULD NOT DOUBT AMERICA'S DETERMINATION TO FULFIL HER COMMITMENTS IN VIETNAM 'SIMPLY BECAUSE A VOCAL MINORITY AMONG OUR PEOPLE EXERCISES THE PRIVILEGE OF DISSENT IN A FREE SOCIETY.

    HE SAID THAT EVEN DURING HIS SHORT TIME IN VIETNAM, HE HAD NOTICED A CONFIDENCE IN THE COUNTRY. "EVEN NOW I CAN SEE BEYOND THE CRUEL DAILY CONFLICT TO A PERIOD OF PEACE AND FRIENDLY ASSOCIATION AMONG THE NATIONS OF THIS RICHLY ENDOWED REGION".
