According to the South Vietnamese chargé d’affaires, the [Provisional Revolutionary Government] delegation that visited Pyongyang in December [1973] signed an agreement, on whose basis the DPRK provides them with 70 tractors with a complete set of related equipment, trailers, etc., free of charge. On the basis of the agreement that Pham Van Dong signed last year, they receive construction materials, medical drugs, chemical fertilizer, and iron products. What causes problems is that the DPRK fulfilled barely 60 percent of the shipment obligations it undertook in 1973.
