The Looking-Glass Conference

Karnov, Stanley
March 1973
New Republic;3/17/73, Vol. 168 Issue 11, p13
Focuses on the conference on Vietnam held in Paris, France, which, in the view of the author, failed to establish any plausible guarantee of peace in Vietnam but instead merely voiced the hope that the war would not again erupt. Views of William Rogers, U.S. Secretary of State on peace in Vietnam; Information on the announcement by the Vietcong spokesman that the further release of American prisoners of war would be suspended; Assurance given to Rogers by North Vietnamese Foreign Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh that the prisoners would be freed on schedule; Statement that if peace is achieved in Vietnam, the conference will have been a ceremonial occasion and if the war heats up again, it will have been a waste.
