    Background: Former U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon finished a three day tour of South Vietnam yesterday (Friday) during which he met the U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge.

    Before taking off for Hong Kong, Mr Nixon suggested that Mr Lodge should stay in Vietnam to continue to direct U.S. efforts in the fight against the Communist Viet Cong.

    Since Mr. Lodge won the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary election last month, there have been calls for his return to the United States to begin active campaigning. Mr. Nixon, who is also a possible contender for the Republican presidential nomination, said he was not thinking of politics when he suggested Lodge stay on the job in Saigon. It was "absolutely imperative", he said, that the United States remain fully committed in South Vietnam until complete victory is achieved; to insure continuity in that effort, Mr Lodge's presence was vital.

    Mr Lodge was Mr Nixon's running mate in the 1960 presidential election.
