    Background: THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR JOZEF LENART, HAS BEEN LEADING A CZECH DELEGATION TO NORTH VIETNAM. THE SIX-DAY VISIT BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 23RD, AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ENGAGEMENTS TOOK PLACE LAST SUNDAY WHEN THE CZECH DELEGATION ATTENDED A RECEPTION AT THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN HANOI.

    THE MAYOR OF HANOI, CHAN ZUI FUN, WELCOMED THE CZECHOSLOVAKIANS. REPLYING, MR LENART SAID THAT HIS VISIT TO HANOI DEMONSTRATED ONCE AGAIN HIS COUNTRY'S SUPPORT FOR "YOUR JUST CAUSE" CZECHOSLOVAKIA LIKE OTHER SOCIALIST COUNTRIES, WOULD CONTINUE GIVING EFFICACIOUS ASSISTANCE IN POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND OTHER FIELDS TO STRENGTHEN NORTH VIETNAM'S ECONOMY AND DEFENCE, HE ADDED.

    THE NORTH VIETNAMESE PRIME MINISTER, PHAM VAN DONG, REJECTED UNITED STATES' PEACE OVERTURES. HE SAID THE AMERICAN OFFERS OF SO-CALLED UNCONDITIONAL NEGOTIATIONS WERE IN FACT ACCOMPANIED WITH UTTERLY ABSURD CONDITIONS WHICH WERE DETRIMENTAL TO THE SACRED RIGHTS OF THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE AND TO THE INDEPENDENCE AND SOVEREIGNTY OF NORTH VIETNAM. HE PEITERATED HIS COUNTRY'S CONVICTION THAT THE COMMUNIST SIDE WOULD WIN THE WAR.

    PREMIER PHAM VAN DONG INTRODUCED TO THE GUESTS A 14-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO WAS SAID TO HAVE KILLED 14 AMERICAN SOLDIERS IN SOUTH VIETNAM. THE BOY, DUAN HAN RUELI, WAS GIVEN THE TITLE "HERO OF VIETNAM WHO ANNIHILATED AMERICAN IMPERIALISTS."
