REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(Paris, France) United States and North Vietnam disagree on why talks being resumed as well as why talks broke down. United States says Kissinger-Le Duc Tho never broke down. This suggests North Vietnam now offering new concessions since talks will resume. North Vietnam says United States yielded to North Vietnam demand for bombing halt, so North Vietnam is resuming talks. Viet Cong says United States must now sign October agreement. Kissinger says this unsatisfactory. Nobody saying peace at hand anymore.
