President Nguyen Van Thieu conducted business very much as usual although his main concern during the period centered around the current talks relating to a bombing halt. He discussed the situation with almost everyone who visited his office including senior Cabinet officials, aides and secretaries, and religious and political personnages. Thieu's comments to his visitors indicate two main concerns about the discussions underway. The first concern was the status of the NFL at the negotiating table following a halt of the bombing. The second point entails Thieu's strong conviction that DRV concessions in return for a bombing halt must be spelled out and guaranteed. On both points the President is adamant and his position remains consistent throughout the reporting period.
