“To approve the position that the RS Romania party and government delegation, led by Ion Gheorghe Maurer, will adopt in the discussions that it will have with the Vietnamese side on the occasion of the visit they will make to the D.R. Vietnam.

Comrade Paul Niculescu-Mizil received in audience the Ambassador of the D.R. Vietnam in Bucharest to inform him on the discussions that took place in Moscow on the Vietnamese problem on the occasion of the visit of our party and state leadership regarding some military objectives, as well about the discussions comrade Corneliu Manescu had with A. Goldberg, the U.S. representative at the UN, in connection with the Vietnamese problem, underscoring that in the opinion of our party it would be useful to act – using the currently-existing favorable moment – to halt the U.S. bombardments in Vietnam.”
