There is also fear that Nixon might make a deal with Brezhnev at Is- rael s expense There isconsiderable jjaisc for the American pi-ess and for the judicial system. South Vietnam There has been widespread popular interest in Watergate in Saigon, reflected in large newspaper headlines day af- ter day, talk in coffee shops politicians gather, and in government offices. _ Some South Vietnamese have seized upon Watergate to vent anti-American feel- ings, noting that Americans have long criticized them ior corruption. But some Viet- namese, those educated in the U S. see Watergate as evidence of the basic strengths of the Ameri- can political system One young official said, for in- stance, that ''American can rightly claim to be the cham- or Ottside Choose from over 1500 Designs REPAIRS and PRESSURE WORK SUBWAY North Mayor Drive 328-3152 328-7596 pion of freedom and demo- cracy.'1 The greatest impact may fall on future aid to Saigon. Some South Vietnamese iear that the communists may seize Watergate as an oppor- tunity for a new offensive. Canada There has been, no official reacaon to Watergate, but press coverage is nearly as extensive as m the U.S. and dominates the news. It is overwhelmingly an express- ion of shock and dismay, a favorite reaction of Cana- dians to shortcomings of their big, powerful neighbor. Since Nixon has never been popular in Canaoa, Canadians tend to find him rather than the presidency, or the Ameri- can system, vulnerable, China Although the Chinese press has not carried a about Watergate, there have been summaries of foreign press reports in the special limited- en culation bulletin supplied to officials throughout China. Recen. visitors from Peking said that Chinese of- ficials are interested but not markedly shocked by Water- gate revelations. They were said to take the view that it was an expectable develop- ment, given the basic weak- ness of the capitalist system. West Germany Chancellor Will y Brandt was in Washington when Nix- on made his speech accept- ing responsibility for Water- gate, and Brandt has told in- timates that he was "shaken up by it The Germans Americans Brandt won concession in the final communique because of Wa- tergate. The German papers are saying: "Nixon mus-. have known, and if he did, what win happen now, and he must somehow make a clean breast of it." Japan The Japanese press has given heavy coverage to Watergate, but so far. the impact on the country has limited. Although American pres- tige has diminished in Jao- anese eyes, 'the American press and American con- gressmen have won consider- able respect and admiration.

India Nixon has never been pop- ular in India and Watergate has not improved his image. But so far there has been no official comment, and rela- tions do not seem to have been affected. However, the Indian press has seized upon the scandal to compare the way political corruption is exposed in Am- erica and kept hidden in In- dia. Soviet Union Because of its developing, closer relationship with the U.S.. the Soviet leadership de- cided to suppress news of the Watergate affair although an article did appear in a weekly publication. The Russians are said to feel that publicity may lead to questions in the public mind of how Moscow could want to become so friendly with a corrupt government. There have been questions at public lectures, however, stemming from foreign broadcasts about the affair. fair In one case, a lecturer merely said that Nixon had to place some offiaafls tainft. ed by an election scandal End of explanation. Privately, (Soviet officials are concerned about In> pact, particularly Nixon's ability to get congressional approval of trade concessions promised last year.
