Foreign Relations of the United States, 1969-1976: Volume IX: Vietnam, October 1972-January 1973
John M. Carland (ed)
Documents the marathon four-day negotiating session between Henry Kissinger and North Vietnamese rep. Le Duc Tho in Paris (Oct. 8-11, 1972). The peace agreement they reached was rejected by South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu. The U.S. attempted to convince Thieu that he was wrong, and in Nov. Nixon sent Kissinger back to Paris to renegotiate 69 points on behalf of the South Vietnamese. The North Vietnamese, fiercely disagreeing with the U.S. move, decided that they too would renegotiate issues previously agreed to. By mid-Nov., the talks were on the verge of collapse. Consequently, the central goals of U.S. foreign policy over the next few weeks were to compel both South Vietnam and North Vietnam to accept, in its main tenets, the agreement that the U.S. had negotiated with the latter in Oct. In the wake of unproductive Dec. meetings, Nixon decided to re-mine Haiphong Harbor and ordered an air campaign against the Hanoi-Haiphong complex. He hoped to shock the North Vietnamese back to negotiations and remind the South Vietnamese that Americańˇ╗s commitment to the defense and survival of South Vietnam was contingent upon South Vietnam supporting the agreement. North Vietnam agreed to return to the negotiating table, and Thieu agreed to the new terms. In early Jan. 1973, Kissinger and Le Duc Tho returned to Paris and in several days of hard bargaining ironed out the last details of the settlement. This is a print on demand report.
