Background: United States special envoy, Mr. William Sullivan, left Saigon on Saturday (26 May) after two days of talks with South Vietnamese leaders on ways of making the ceasefire in the country work.
Mr. Sullivan had also visited Phnom Penh, Vientiane and Bangkok to brief the Khmer, Laotian and Thai governments on the renewed Paris talks.
In Saigon, Mr. Sullivan, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South-East Asian Affairs, met President Nguyen Van Thieu, Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam and other South Vietnamese officials.
A U.S. Embassy official said they'd held a point-to-point discussion of matters raised in the Paris meetings between President Nixon's National Security Adviser, Dr. Henry Kissinger, and North Vietnam's negotiator, Le Duc Tho.
Mr. Sullivan was expected back in Washington on Sunday (May 27) to report to Dr. Kissinger before the latter flew to Paris again to resume the meetings with Le Duc Tho.
