  • Description


    NINON AND AGNEW IN SAN ANTONIO; BOARDING HELICOPTER; LEAVING HELICOPTER; NINON SPEAKING - SOUND ON FILM-TELERECORDING



    TRANSCRIPT: NINON: "WITH REGARD TO THE KEY QUESTION OF VIETNAM, THE NEGOTIATIONS ARE CONTINUING. THERE ARE NO SIGNIFICANT NEW DEVELOPMENTS TO REPORT. THERE IS, HOWEVER, STILL THE BELIEF ON THE PART OF THE NEGOTIATORS THAT THERE IS A CHANCE THAT NEGOTIATIONS MIGHT BRING PROGRESS. IT IS STILL MY EVALUATION THAT THAT CHANCE IS NOT A GOOD CHANCE, BUT IT IS ENOUGH OF A CHANCE THAT ANY STATEMENTS THAT MIGHT BE MADE BY ANYBODY WHO IS A POTENTIAL PRESIDENT - CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT - IT WOULD BE IRRESPONSIBLE IF THEY IN ANY WAY REDUCED OR DESTROYED THE NEGOTIATING POSITION OF OUR NEGOTIATORS."
