De escalation deadlock mulled during talks Lull Paris apr the first positions taken by the United states and North Vietnam in the Paris cease fire talks suggest that Only the patient skillful Diplo Macy of Compromise can eventually bring peace to the War ravaged provinces of Vietnam.

They disagreed totally on new moves to scale Down the fighting. But neither delegation seems to accept this deadlock As final it is regarded rather As a Start toward bar gaining. The two positions on this and other issues were staked out at mondays opening session in a 4,000-word speech in vietnamese by Xuan Thuy and an 1,800-word speech by Harriman. Thuy spoke first at Harriman a suggestion.
