(Studio) United States Ambassador William Porter breaks off Paris Peace Talks.
REPORTER: Howard K. Smith

(White House) President aide Henry Kissinger talked with North Vietnam chief negotiator Le Duc Tho in Paris for 7 hrs. last Monday, but accomplished nothing. He never proposed a coalition government for South Vietnam. Tuesday he had dinner briefing with President aboard yacht Sequoia. Decision made to hold Thursday talks, but when they also failed to add anything new, talks suspended. Russia says Moscow betrayed by North Vietnam at Paris talks. Says Soviet Party leader Brezhnev did not lie to Kissinger.
