Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunder, Nov.mbtr 9, THE LETHIRIDGE HERALD 21 World welcomes President Nixon's landslide election victory LONDON (neuter) The world greeted President Nix- on's landslide re-election with general satisfaction, many countries saying it was better to have an old, known face in power in the United States rather than a new one. Western Europe in particular was well pleased while South Vietnam and other U.S. allies In Southeast Asia and the Far East also welcomed his re-elec- tion, South Vietnamese Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam, speak- ing Wednesday In Saigon as Viet Cong sappers attacked the U.S. base in the country with explosives, said Nixon's overwhelming victory "showed the American people are voting according to common sense, for peace with honor." Both government and opposi- tion figures welcomed the Nixon victory but remained wary of the U.S. government's plans for peace in Indochina. One pro government senator felt Nixon now would be able to exert more pressure on North Vietnam. In Tokyo, the Japanese gov- ernment, also welcoming Nix- on's re-election, said his tri- umph reflected the American people's great trust in his do- mestic and foreign poiicy. It hoped he would promote world peace and stability and further expand world economic rela- tions. In Moscow, the view was that the Kremlin's leaders were also nodding approval that a man they knew was still controlling U.S. policy. The official Soviet news agency Tass reported Nixon's re-election in a one-sen- tence despatch, with no com- ment. The feeling in most West Eu- ropean capitals was one of saU isfaction that Nbron was re- maining In power. They looked forward to him continuing his strong commitment to the At- lantic pact and general support for the European Common Market. Other reactions included: Seoul: South Korean officials welcomed Nixon's victory, but there was little excitement since they had considered it a foregone conclusion. Pre-occu- pied with their own problems, including sweeping political changes initialed by President Chung-hee Park under martial law and the dialogue with North Korea, South Koreans have shown less interest in the Amer- ican election than usual. ISankok; An official Thailand spokesman said Nixon had been "close to us" and added: "We did not want a new friend who Is unfamiliar to us. Vienna: Austria's Chancellor Bruno Kreisky called the elec- tion results the personal victory of Nixon. "the Democratic party was not is Nixon's p e r s o na 1 Kreisky said. Christchurch: New Zealand Prime Minister John Marshall welcomed Nixon's victory by saying: "I believe New Zealand will be well served by this deci- sive verdict of the American people." The New Zealand prime, minister said tho pros- pect of an "honorable peace" in Vietnam had improved as a result of the election. Paris: French President Georges Pompidou sent a mes- sage expressing his "hearty congratulations" to Nixon on his re-election. Rome: Italian President Gio- vanni Leone Bent a telegram of congratulations to Nixon follow- ing his victory. Taipei: Nationalist Chinese of- ficials expressed the hope that Nixon would continue to uphold the U.S. treaty commitments in the defence of Taiwan. A tionalist official predicted that Taiwan could expect continued U.S. support during Nixon's iec- ond term of office. Bonn: West German Chan- cellor Willy Brandt con- gratulated Nixon on hia reflec- tion, and said it was "of ex- traordinary significance for the peace in the world." Brandt said he was confident that "we will be able successfully to con- tinue our joint political efforts towards making European-Am- erican relations even closer." j GOOD FOOD COSTS LESS rtruuit WHERE GOOD FOOD COSTS LESS 420 6th Street S.
