SUBJ:  Political Report Presented by Pham Van Dong, Prime Minister of the
Democratic Republic of Vietnam, before the NVN National Assembly. (U)
          
(U) (8 pages, typewritten; B-3) Political report, undated, presented by Pham
Van Dong Prime Minister ((of the Democratic Republic of VN)) during the Second
Session of the Fourth National Assembly ( (possibly held in 1971) ) 9 contains
an assessment of the politico-military situation within three of the
Indochinese countries' and a reaffirmation of NVN' sdetermination to continue
the fighting until reunification and independence of these countries are
attained. After relating that friendly forces have achieved continual
victories in SVN, Laos and the Khmer Republic, and especially in areas along
Route 9 recently, the report depicts the distressed situation of the US and
Puppet ((RVN)) regime in SVN as evidenced by the rising prestige of the NFLSVN
and the ((VC)) Provisional Revolutionary Government ((PRG)), and repeated
defeats of the enemy ((RVN/US)) in both the military and political fields. The
report next points out that, as far the Paris peace negotiations are
concerned, the PRG' s seven-point proposal and the Democratic Republic of VN's
((DRV)) nine-point solution should be used as the basis for a political
solution throughout Indochina. The friendly ((NVN/VC)) side seriously condemns
the Nixon Administration' s unilateral disclosure of the contents of the
US/DRY private talks and the US blatant disruption of the Paris Conference.
This reflects President Nixon' s willingness to continue the Vietnamization
plan and the war of aggression against VN. The friendly side has determinedly
rejected the so-called eight-point peace plan of President Nixon, which is
designed to divert public attention  from the US war of aggression against
Indochinese countries. It is, in fact, intended for implementing US
neocolonialism in SVN, Laos, and the Khmer Republic. As long as the US war of
aggression continues, the Vietnamese people will not relent in their struggle
for the vital and inalienable rights of the country. The SVN people will not
be able to enjoy their right of self-determination and peace until the US
Government ends its aggression against North and South Vietnam by withdrawing
US and satellite troops completely and unconditionally from SVN, dismantling
US bases in SVN, and terminating the Vietnamization plan and its support of
((President)) Thieu' s Government .It is also impossible to divide the ((VC))
seven-point peace formula as it is based upon the fundamental points of the
1954 Geneva Accords. The enemy' s ((US/RVN)) demand, which requires a
compromise between the ((VC)) seven points and the (( US)) eight points, is
tantamount to a robbery's argument. Such a compromise should be categorically
rejected, since it is against the Vietnamese people' sbasic rights and the
common ethical sense of all peoples around the world. It is vital that the
friendly side's diplomatic struggle be stepped up so as to
                                        1

gain additional support for the ((VC)) seven-point solution through world
opinion. The Vietnamese people pledge to fight shoulder to shoulder with the
Khmer and Lao peoples on all fronts. Every effort should thus be made to
promote more understanding, affection, and respect among the three peoples,
and to strictly abide by all the clauses provided for in ((the communique'
of)) the Summit Indochinese Peoples' Congress in Apr 70. The DRV will also
support the Pathet Lao' a political solution as proclaimed by Prince
Souphanouvong on 6 Mar 70, since it is the only means to achieve an equitable
peace in Laos. This solution calls for a complete and unconditional withdrawal
of US technicians and advisers, and Thai troops from Laos together with the
cessation  of US/Saigon ((RVNAF)) bombings in Laos. The conflict in Laos
should only be settled by the two related opposing Lao parties in observance
of the 1962 Geneva Agreements and in accordance with the present situation in
Laos. Moreover, the DRV affirms its continued support of Prince Sihanouk's
five-point proclamation issued on 23 Mar 70 and recognizes the Prince as the
true, legal, and uninterrupted representative of the Khmer Nation. It is
imperative for the US to terminate its Khmerization Plan, discontinue its
support of ((President)) Lon Nol and ((Prime Minister)) Son Ngoc Thanh,
withdraw all US military personnel, Thai/and Saigon ((RVNAF)) forces ((from
the Khmer Republic))) and end all air, naval, and artillery attacks on the
Khmer Republic. The internal affairs of the Khmer Nation should be settled by
the Khmer people without any foreign interference. A passage from a communique
issued at the end of a recent visit to NVN by Prince Sihanouk is quoted as
follows "The US imperialists can no more shake the solidarity between the
three Indochinese countries then the) can reverse the tide of the mighty
Mekong River."
    
In conclusion the document states that all the Vietnamese people would like
to express their sincere gratitude towards the Soviet Union, Red China, all
other socialist countries, and all countries of the third world ((meaning the
non-aligned countries)) for their invaluable support and assistance to NVN in
its anti aggressive war against the US.
