NOW WE ARE NOT GOING TO WITHDRAW THAT SUPPORT. WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE FREEDOM OF THAT COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE, AND WE ARE GOING TO GIVE THEM EVERY POSSIBLE ASSISTANCE TO SUSTAIN THEIR INDEPENDENCE AND THEIR SECURITY. THE DISCUSSED NEUTRALISATION HAS INJECTED A CERTAIN CONFUSION ON POINTS THAT SHOULD VERY VERY SIMPLE. IF THE NORTH LEAVES LAOS. SOUTH VIETNAM ALONE, THERE CAN BE PEACE IN THAT AREA AND THESE COUNTRIES NEED NOT BE FORMALLY ALIGNED WITH ANYONE, ANYSIDE, BUT UNTIL THE NORTH LEAVES SOUTHEAST ASIA ALONE, WE ARE GOING TO SUPPORT THE INDEPENDENCE AND THE SECURITY OF THE COUNTRIES OF SOUTHEAST ASIA."
