*The 700 million Chinese people who are armed with Mao Tse-tung's thought most resolutely support their Vietnamese brothers in resisting U.S. aggression to the end.
*They strongly condemn U.S. imperialism's new military blackmail against Vietnam and the traitorous activities of the Soviet revisionist leading clique.

   On February 28. the Central Committee of the South Vietnam National Front for Liberation issued a statement exposing with numerous facts the U.S. imperialist crimes of aggression against southern Vietnam, reaffirming the stand embodied in its five-part statement of March 22, 19G5 and calling on the people of southern Vietnam to surge forward to thoroughly defeat the U.S. aggressors. On March 1, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam issued a statement sternly condemning U.S. imperialism for its now steps of war escalation in northern Vietnam and expressing the Vietnamese people's determination to fight on resolutely. This is a solemn pledge made by the 31 million heroic sons and daughters of Vietnam in the present new situation of their struggle against VS. aggression and for national salvation, a forceful reply to the new war blackmail of U.S. imperialism.
   The Chinese Government and people express their most resolute support for the just stand of the valiant Vietnamese people!
   Recently, U.S. imperialism has been frantically stepping up the expansion of its war of aggression against Vietnam. In southern Vietnam, U.S. aggressor troops have reached over 400.000, and they are launching a so-called "dry-season offensive" of unprecedented scale on the liberated areas and carrying out with increasing vigour their policy of "kill all, burn all, destroy all." In northern Vietnam, the U.S. bandits have not only stepped up their wanton bombing, but have brazenly resorted to new war escalation by incessantly bombarding the territory of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam from land and sea and dropping mines Into many rivers and canals there. In areas around Vietnam, U.S. imperialism has introduced B-52 aircraft into Thailand, expanded its aggression against Laos and intensified its aimed provocations against Cambodia, all for the purpose of supporting its war of aggression against Vietnam. The chieftain of U.S. bandits L.B. Johnson has cried that "our pressure must ho — and will be — sustained," that the United States "must firmly pursue our present course" and that the United Stales "will stand firm in Vietnam," and so on and so forth. The aggressive arrogance of U.S. imperialism has thus become more unbridled than ever.
   Always employing its counter-revolutionary dual tactics, U.S. imperialism peddles its "peace talks" scheme while expanding its war of aggression. In last February, the Johnson Government cried vociferously that the United States would "stop bombing north Vietnam" if Vietnam took "reciprocal action" and effected military "de-escalation"; and so on and so forth. It has tried to induce the Vietnamese people to accept U.S. terms for negotiation by a "bombing pause." Following the bankruptcy of its scheme to induce surrender through a "bombing pause," U.S. imperialism has accelerated the operation of its war machine for new military blackmail against the Vietnamese people in order to compel them to stop fighting and lay down their arms, bring them to their knees and so realize its aim of perpetuating the forcible occupation of south Vietnam and the division of Vietnam.
   In the service of U.S. imperialism, the Soviet revisionist leading clique has always actively collaborated with it in promoting the "peace talks" plot. During Kosygin's visit to Britain in the beginning of last February, the Soviet revisionist leading clique was engaged in undisguised activities of betrayal. Far from uttering a word about the U.S. imperialist crimes of aggression against Vietnam, it clamoured for "the earliest possible end to the Vietnamese war." It has been exchanging information and hatching secret plots with U.S. imperialism and trying by a thousand and one ways to lure the Vietnamese people into the U.S. trap of "peace talks." In order to confuse the public, the Soviet revisionist leading clique, like a thief crying "stop thief," has concocted anti-Chinese rumours on the question of "the transit of aid supplies to Vietnam" and has tried to sow discord in the relations between China and Vietnam. By these criminal activities, the Soviet revisionist leading clique has fully exposed itself as the number one accomplice of U.S. imperialism in the aggression against Vietnam and the arch betrayer of the Vietnamese people.
   The Vietnamese people are a heroic people; fearing no brute force, they dare to struggle and dare to win. At present, the seemingly powerful U.S. imperialism has long been lost in the vast ocean of the people's war in Vietnam; it has been bogged down so deeply in the quagmire that it finds it impossible either to advance ;or. to retreat. The temporary rampancy of U.S. imperialism indicates not its strength, but its weakness. The Vietnamese people have already given a resounding answer to the new war escalation by U.S. imperialism. In its statement of February 28, the Central Committee of the South Vietnam National Front for Liberation declared: "The people of south Vietnam are deeply attached to peace, but are resolved never to slacken their weapons so long as the shadow of a single V.S. aggressor still remains on the territory of their beloved fatherland!" In its statement of March 1, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam declared: "The Vietnamese people will unite still more closely, and are resolved to fight to defend the north and liberate the south with a view to reunifying the fatherland, thus contributing to the defence of peace in Asia and the world." Chairman Mao Tse-tung has said, "Make trouble, fail, make trouble again, fail again . . . till their doom; that is the logic of the imperialists and all reactionaries the world over in dealing with the people's cause, and they will never go against this logic." This truth is being borne out by the predicament in which U.S. imperialism now finds itself in Vietnam. To whatever extent U.S. imperialism escalates the war and resorts to political deception, it cannot shake the Vietnamese people's iron will in their struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation, nor can it in any circumstances escape the fate of its final defeat.
   Consistently following the teachings of our great leader Chairman Mao, the Chinese Government and people regard it as their bounden internationalist duty to support and aid the Vietnamese people's revolutionary struggle, China is the rear area of Vietnam, and the great proletarian cultural revolution now vigorously going on will surely make China all the more powerful and consolidated. Armed with Mao Tse-tung's thought, the 700 million Chinese people are closely following the new developments of the Vietnam situation and are ready at all times to make greater contributions in supporting and aiding the just struggle of the Vietnamese people. Whatever the storm and stress, the Chinese and Vietnamese peoples will always be united, will always fight together and be victorious together.
March 5, 1967
