Kaesong as proposed by Gen Matthew B Ridgway The remarks were unofficial and did not say the reds accepted the supreme allied commanders proposal The talks have been suspended since Aug 23 First Hint

talks are held nothing will come of them unless the Americans are willing to agree to the armistice on the lines pro posed by Russias Jacob Malik Presumably he was referring to the 38th parallel where
