The Paris Peace Talks between the US and North Vietnam (NVN) are seen by Hanoi as only one prong of a two-pronged struggle to force the US out of South Vietnam (SVN). In conjunction with a military victory, the Paris Talks are designed to frustrate American efforts to the extent that the US will withdraw from SVN. The present offensive against Saigon was planned to provide the military victory.
