Foreign Minister Thanh and a Special Presidential Assistant are preparing a detailed three-stage proposal involving: 1) an international conference; 2) direct Saigon/Hanoi talks; and 3) direct Saigon/National Liberation Front talks. Vice President Ky has told friends he is solidly behind President Thieu while Thieu has told his brother he is pleased with Ky at the moment. Thieu, who previously enjoyed no reputation as an anti-Communist stalwart, has by his 2 November speech, convinced people of his anti-communism, forged unity among the country's political elite, and laid the basis for a change in policy, including even direct talks with the Front. He has also proved he is no American lackey.
