All Warring Parties Sign A Cease Fire Agreement In Paris

On May 8, 1972, President Nixon made a grand concession to North Vietnam by announcing that the United States would accept a ceasefire as a precondition for its military withdrawal. In other words, the US would withdraw its forces from southern Vietnam without it doing the same. The concession broke the deadlock and allowed progress in the discussions to be made in the coming months.

The Libyan belligerents agreed by land in the open air: on April 30, 1975, the UN envoy Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese Army, with the support of Viet-Cong units. In the early morning of April 29, Schlesinger announced the start of Operation Frequent Wind, which included the helicopter evacuation of the last U.S. diplomatic, military and civilian personnel from Saigon, which ended in the early hours of April 30. Not only did North Vietnam conquer southern Vietnam, but the Communists also won victory in Cambodia when the Khmer Rouge conquered Phnom Penh on April 17, as did the Pathet Lao in Laos, who successfully conquered Vientiane on December 2. As in Saigon, U.S. civilian and military personnel were evacuated from Phnom Penh, the U.S. diplomatic presence in Vientiane was significantly degraded, and the number of remaining U.S. personnel was greatly reduced. Each of the other delegations concluded four groups of signed agreements.

Saigon took only two, the English and Vietnamese versions mentioned only the “parts” of the conference. The preamble to the quadripartite documents did not mention a government by name and referred only to “parties that participated in the Paris Conference on Vietnam.” After winning the 1968 presidential election, Richard Nixon became President of the United States in January 1969. He then replaced U.S. Ambassador Harriman with Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., who was later replaced by David Bruce. This year again, the NLF set up a Provisional Revolutionary Government (PRG) to obtain government status during the talks. However, the main negotiations that resulted in the agreement did not take place at all at the peace conference, but took place during secret negotiations between Kissinger and Lê Đức Thọ, which began on August 4, 1969. Nixon had secretly promised Thiệu that he would use the air force to support the South Vietnamese government if necessary. During his confirmation hearings in June 1973, Defense Secretary James Schlesinger was severely criticized by some senators, after declared that he would recommend the resumption of U.S. bombing in northern Vietnam if northern Vietnam launched a large-scale offensive against southern Vietnam, but until August 15, 1973, 95% of U.S.

troops and their allies had Vietnam (north and south), as well as Cambodia and Laos under the Church case Amend verla D`un repas. The amendment, approved by the U.S. Congress in June 1973, prohibited other U.S. military activities in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia unless the president had obtained prior congressional approval. During this period, however, Nixon was ousted from office due to the Watergate scandal, which led to his resignation in 1974. When the North Vietnamese began their last offensive in early 1975, the United States Congress refused to ask for additional military aid for southern Vietnam and pointed to the strong American opposition to the war and the loss of American equipment in the North through the withdrawal of armed forces from the South. . . .
