Memorandum by the Special Adviser to the United States Delegation (Bonsal) to the Head of the Delegation (Smith)
The Vietnamese Foreign Minister [Do] has just told me that he will be present at the plenary session this afternoon. He will state that his government is glad that a cease fire has been arranged. He will protest at the manner in which the negotiations have been conducted and at the fact that his government has not been kept informed. He will state that his government does not plan to use force in order to overthrow the cease fire but that it reserves its freedom of action in the political field.
