President Thieu expects Hanoi to make two demands during the forthcoming peace talks that will be unacceptable to him: 1) that the Government of Vietnam (GVN) negotiate directly with the National Liberation Front (NFLSV); and, 2) that the GVN form a genuine coalition with the NFLSV. Thieu considers it essential that the opening of peace talks should not lead to a diminution of US aid and that the GVN exert every effort to keep the US Government from seperating the question of a bombing halt from that of a treaty to end the war in South Vietnam. Thieu said he was seriously considering declaring a general mobilization. ____ briefed Thieu on a new interministerial council charged with studying ways of maintaining GVN authority in the event of another emergency similar to the Viet Cong Tet Offensive.
