Under an accord signed June 13 calling on all parties involved in the Vietnam War to honor its cease-fire, Saigon and the Viet Cong were given until July 27 to reach agreement on elections in the south. , The two sides met periodical- 1 iy during the first 90 days after :die original Jan. 27 cease-fire agreement, but failed to reach {agreement. • j Second Deadline I The second deadline was set last month when South and | North Vietnam, the Viet Cong and the United States signed a statement asking all parties concerned to safeguard the fragile truce in Vietnam. When the Viet Cong and Saigon met last Wednesday for the 16th time, Deputy Premier Nguyen Luu "Vien of South Vietnam proposed that the two sides meet in private sessions similar to those which led to the cease-fire agreement. Vien wanted the secret talks, modeled after negotiations be­ tween Henry A. Kissinger and his Hanoi counterpart, Le Due Tho, because he said only private sessions could result in any progress. The Viet Cong dismissed the idea., Serktis Discussion "This is a gimmick designed- to make the conference drag pn and on," Nguyen Van Heieu, Viet Cong minister of state, said. "If Saigon wants to discuss things seriously, T told them it can be done right here and now and not in any new form." Under the Vietnam cease-fire accord and the June 13 communique, the two sides must set up a three-sided body to organize elections. Two sides are the Viet Gong and Saigon. The third side, under the agreement, is composed of neutral parties. South Vietnam rejected a suggestion last week that the neutralists join v the present talks. "These people are so numerous and they are living in such distant places as the United States and Japan," Vien said, "that they would have to travel all over the worJd to come here and get around the table."
