I President Warns Hanoi, Kissinger Sees Cease - Fire WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon promised Thursday the United States would not interfere with a Communist takeover of Indochina, as long as the takeover is accomplished by peaceful means. But he warned that Hanoi "would risk revived confrontation with us" if it attempts to conquer its neighbors by force The President's promise and warning came in a "State of the World" report to Congress. In a recorded radio address, broadcast at the same time the report was released to Con gress, the President blamed North Vietnam's "continuous violation" of the peace agreement for the "fragile" cease fire existing in Vietnam and Laos. The P r e s i d e n t's remarks broadly summarized, his 232- page, 60,000-word report to Congress titled "Shaping a Durable Peace." The report was drafted by the National Security Council, headed by Henry A. Kissinger. Hopes Problems Can Be Solved Nixon said he "earnestly" hoped that problems blocking a cease-fire in Cambodia "can be solved at the conference table " Kissinger briefed reporters on the report before departing for Moscow to prepare for the expected Washington visit in late June of Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev. Kissinger appeared optimistic that some form of cease-fire arrangement can begin in Cambodia in the near future. "We are not too pessimistic (that) over a period of weeks, maybe some months, some cease-fire negotiations could start," Kissinger said. In his report, Nixon said the objectives and policies of the U.S. in Cambodia "run parallel to those in Laos." "We aim for an independent, neutral and stable country," he said. "We do not insist on any political orientation, but we believe any course should be the free choice of the people themselves, not one imposed by North Vietnamese arms." He Summarizes Report Nixon summarized the book- length report by stating: "Our policy in the world for the next four years can be summarized quite simply. Where peace, is newly planted, we shall make it thrive; Where friendships have endured, we shall work to make them grow."

The spokesman's remark came as the North Vietnamese Army newspaper Quan Doi Nhan Dan accused the United States of sending reconnaissance planes over Communist- controlled territory in South Vietnam "in brazen violation of the Paris agreement." The newspaper Quan Doi Nhan Dan said in a commentary broadcast by Hanoi's Vietnam News Agency (VNA) that Communist forces had fired on a U.S. reconnaissance plane in northernmost Quang Tri province May 2. Two International Commission for Control and Supervision (ICCS) helicopters were ordered back to a base near Quang Tri the same day after ICCS observers on the ground reported seeing tracer bullets being fired at the choppers from Communist territory. The helicopters were not hit.

Gat A Held of tho Exports Coll Hall FREE ESTIMATES No Job Too Small 342-2786 Despite the broad scope of the report, Nixon alloted a major section to Indochina. He said he did not envision Hanoi abandoning its goal tof dominating Indochina. But he warned that North Vietnam "would risk revived confrontation with us" if it attempts to conquer its neighbors by force. He did not spell out what "revived confrontation" would entail. "Hanoi has two basic choices," Nixon said. "The first is to exploit the Vietnam agreement and press its objectives in Indochina. In this case it would, through pressures or outright attack, renew its aggression against' our friends. Such a course would endanger the hard-won gains for peace" in Indochina. "It Would risk revived con­ frontation with us," Nixon said. "It would, of course, destroy the chances for a new and constructive bilateral relationship with the United States, including economic assistance. The Second Course "The second course is for North Vietnam to pursue its objectives peacefully, allowing the historical trends of the region to - assert themselves. This would mean observance of the Vietnam settlement and the removal of foreign forces on both sides from Laos and Cambodia. It would transform years of military conflict in Indochina into political struggle. "If Hanoi follows this path, the United States will abide by whatever the historical process produces in Indochina," the President said. He also urged the Soviet Union and China to "lend moderating influence" in Indochina by reducing the flow of arms to North Vietnam. In the report drafted by the national council staff headed by Kissinger, Nixon also: —Said • the Soviet Union is developing three new intercontinental ballistic missiles armed with sophisticated multiple warheads which could place the United states at a strategic disadvantage unless this country goes ahead with weapons projects such as hard-site missile bases,, the Trident submarine and the Bl bomber. —Called for the United States and its European allies to develop a unanimous bargaining position prior to the start this fall of negotiations with the Communist bloc on mutual and balanced reductions of forces in Europe. He said lack of such preliminary agreement could sabotage the larger East-West talks. Will Visit Latin America —Promised to visit Latin America this year, probably in late fall, to "underscore our deep interest in Latin America through expanded "personal involvement." —Vowed tough trade negotiations with Japan and the European Common Market later this year in an effort to eliminate policies which discriminate against U.S. goods. —Reaffirmed U.S. support for Israel but said this nation also wants to restore friendly relations-including full diplomatic recognition — with Egypt and other Arab states that broke their ties with Washington during the 1967 Six- Day War. —Predicted continued easing of U.S. relations with China.
