    Background: THE ROOM IN THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE IN PARIS, IN WHICH THE VIETNAM PEACE TALKS WILL START ON MONDAY, CONTAINS A LARGE TAPESTRY OF UNCERTAIN ORIGIN. CONTAINED IN THE DESIGN OF THE TAPESTRY ARE A HAWK AND A DOVE, AND THEY WILL BE LOOKING DOWN ON THE CRUCIAL EVENTS THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE IN THE ROOM FOR THE DURATION OF THE TALKS.

    THE CONFERENCE CENTRE IS IN AVENUE KLEBER. IT ACQUIRED A REPUTATION AS THE WARTIME HEADQUARTERS OF THE GERMAN GESTAPO, AND HAS SINCE BEEN USED FOR GOVERNMENTAL AND COMMERCIAL CONFERENCES.

    THE ROOM IN WHICH THE TWO FACTIONS WILL MEET CONTAINS FOUR LONG TABLES, SET IN A SQUARE. DELEGATES FROM EACH COUNTRY WILL SIT OPPOSITE EACH OTHER, BEFORE TWO BATTERIES OF MICROPHONES. OBSERVERS WILL BE SEATED BEHIND EACH ROW OF DELEGATES.

    THE TAPESTRY DOMINATES THE WHOLE OF ONE WALL IN THE ROOM.
