SVNLF representative reaffirmed following points concerning its present position: 1) Possible talks between DRV and US will have no direct bearing on the conflict in South Vietnam. The DRV is not in a position either to propose or to accept a truce in South Vietnam. Either the SVNLF rightful position is recognized or it will continue to fight; 2) The SVNLF wants an independent and truly neutral South Vietnam, and a coalition government in Saigon in which it will be represented but which will also have representatives of all strata and political shades of South Vietnamese. Such a govenment would maintain relationships with Western nations as well as with socialist bloc nations, and would not pose a threat to the DRV as the present puppet regime in Saigon does.
