The members of the Fifth Russell Tribunal Investigation Team who recently visited hanoi had a meeting with Pham Van Dong on 11 August. The Tribunal members were quite disappointed with Dong's evasiveness in handling direct questions and with his failure to support with factual material his claims that the war would be won in the long run. Dong spoke only of winning the war, although he predicted that much worse times were in store for the North Vietnamese people. He claimed that Vietnamese preparations for further escalation by the Americans have already been made. The subject of a negotiated settlement to the war was not mentioned.
