ABSTRACT
The article praises the foreign policy moves of the United States administration in the months leading up to October 1970. It notes that the 90-day cease-fire arranged by the U.S. Secretary of State in the Middle East has held, and is expected to hold beyond the specified expiration date. U.S. president Richard Nixon has also gained widespread approval for a planned cease-fire in the Vietnam War and his proposals for a broadened peace conference to consider a settlement covering all of Indochina.
