Evolution of Communist Positions concerning Negotiations [North Vietnam has traditionally discussed terms for settlement rather than for negotiations and has been firm on insistence of US withdrawal of troops, observance of the 1954 Geneva Accords, and settlement of differences by the South Vietnamese and the Liberation Front with the Liberation Front playing a decisive role. The People's Republic of China has been adamant against negotiations and has attacked the USSR for promoting talks. The USSR has taken a noncommittal stand on negotiations since the first US bombing strikes on North Vietnam and has unofficially stated that no negotiations can take place until US air strikes end]. Office of Current Intelligence Memorandum No. 1782/65. June 21, 1965. 6 p. SECRET. SANITIZED copy. Released Mar. 23, 1978. Johnson Library, NSF, Countries, Vietnam, Vol. 35.
