BARNARD SEOUL If) President Syngman Rhee today set an April deadline for the peaceful unification of Ko- rea and warned that "We will not sit back and wait until we are sold out." An official government spokes- man later issued a statement modi- fying the aging president's warn- ing. Rhee told a news conference that 180 days after the start of prelimi- nary Korea peace talks last Oct. 26 South Korea will be "free to take our own good, bad or in- different." This would make the deadline April 23. Rhee reiterated the 180-day warn- ing three times during the news conference. But six hours later Dr. Karl Hong Ki, official government spokesman, said the president "did not set a definite deadline of April 26 for Korean unification. Rhee said that even if a peace conference convenes "I do not ex- pect any great achievement." Wouldn't Wait Asked about the possibility that no conference will be held, the ROK President replied: "I think that would automatically relieve my government of the obli- gation for waiting." Rhee said he would give Allied and Communist diplomats another month to "settle the time and place for a political (peace) conference." "I could settle it in three he added. "Then the political conference should begin right give it 90 days, that's 180 days in all. After that, something must be done. "Our brothers are begging and pleading with us to come and help them."
