Abstract:
III Corps Commander Major General Le Nguyen Khang said that he has heard no rumors of coup planning during the past few days. He considers the situation calm and anticipates no unexpected action against the government during the Manila Conference. He does not consider that Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Huu Co, IV Corps Commander Lt. General Dang Van Quang, or Acting Prime Minister Nguyen Luu Vien would be foolish enough to attempt action against the government at this time. As proof, Khang cited the fact that Madame Co remains at the General Staff compound, which would be unlikely if any coup attempt were being planned. Khang said that the commanders of the Seventh and Ninth Divisions would never participate in machinations engineered by Quang. Khang also denied that he or Police Director Brigadier General Nguyen Ngoc Loan had taken any "special" precautionary measures.
