The delegation was accorded everywhere a warm welcome and grand and cordial reception by Chinese Party and Government leaders at various levels and the Chinese people. The Delegation of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam is sincerely thankful for the noble sentiments shown to them.
  Chairman Mao Tsetung met with President Nguyen Huu Tho, and they had a most cordial and friendly conversation.

  The talks proceeded in a most warm and friendly atmosphere and were permeated throughout with the revolutionary sentiments of "both comrades and brothers."
  The Republic of South Viet Nam side expresses its admiration and warm praise for the great achievements attained by the Chinese people in socialist revolution and socialist construction.
  In the past 24 years, the industrious and valiant Chinese people, under the leadership of the glorious Chinese Communist Party headed by respected and beloved Chairman Mao Tsetung, have consistently carried forward their glorious revolutionary tradition, displayed the spirit of self-reliance, firm determination, hard work, and building the country with diligence and thrift, and transformed the semi-feudal and semi-colonial old China into a socialist country with a modern industry, an all-round developed agriculture, mighty national defences and advanced culture, science and technology.
  These achievements of the Chinese people have contributed positively to the strength of the people of the world in their struggle for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress and continuously raised the international standing of the People's Republic of China.
  The south Vietnamese people greatly rejoice at the great achievements scored by the Chinese people and sincerely wish that the fraternal Chinese people, inspired by the Tenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, will win still greater successes in socialist revolution and socialist construction, so that the People's Republic of China will advance in big strides along the road of prosperity and happiness.
  The Republic of South Viet Nam side resolutely supports the Chinese people in their struggle for the liberation of Taiwan Province, inalienable sacred territory of the People's Republic of China, and is convinced of the complete victory of this struggle.
  The south Vietnamese people take great pride in having the great Chinese people as their close comrades-in-arms and brothers. In the past war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation and the present extremely arduous and complicated revolutionary struggle, the south Vietnamese people have always received enormous and effective support and assistance from the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese Government and people. This assistance rendered with a full measure of fraternal sentiments was an important contribution to the Vietnamese people's historic victory and is an encouragement for the south Vietnamese armymen and people to further accomplish their glorious tasks in the new stage.
  In fulfilment of the sacred behest of the great leader of the Vietnamese people, respected and beloved President Ho Chi Minh, and in compliance with the desire of the south Vietnamese people, the Delegation of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam expresses heartfelt and profound thanks to the great leader of the Chinese people, respected and beloved Chairman Mao Tsetung, to the glorious Chinese Communist Party, the Government of the People's Republic of China and the heroic Chinese people for their sincere and invaluable assistance.
  The Chinese side warmly hails the great victory won by the south Vietnamese people in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation under the leadership of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam.
  The signing of the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Viet Nam, which recognizes the Vietnamese people's fundamental national rights and the south Vietnamese people's right to self-determination, was a great victory won by the entire Vietnamese people holding high the banner of President Ho Chi Minh's call for "firm resolve to fight and win" and persevering in a protracted people's war; it was also a victory for the united struggle of the three Indochinese peoples and a common victory for the people all over the world.
  The victory of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation not only marks a new chapter in the history of Viet Nam's struggle for national liberation, it greatly inspires the oppressed nations and peoples fighting for independence and freedom, constituting a valuable contribution to, and setting a brilliant example in, the anti-imperialist revolutionary struggle of the people of the whole world.
  The Chinese side notes with pleasure that the correct stand of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam in striving for the implementation of the Paris agreement and the preservation of peace in south Viet Nam has won strong sympathy and support among the people of the whole world. The Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam, which is the sole authentic representative of the south Vietnamese people, is enjoying an ever higher international standing and prestige.
  The Chinese side is firmly convinced that the fraternal south Vietnamese people, under the leadership of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam, will surmount all difficulties and obstacles and win even greater victories in their struggle to build a peaceful, independent, democratic, neutral and prosperous south Viet Nam and proceed to the peaceful reunification of their country*
  The Republic of South Viet Nam side has given information on the situation in south Viet Nam since the signing of the Paris agreement, pointing out that violations of some vital provisions of the agreement by the United States and the Saigon administration have brought about a very grave situation in south Viet Nam.  The Republic of South Viet Nam side reiterates that it is its consistent position to thoroughly respect and scrupulously implement the Paris agreement and the joint communique of June 13, 1973 and resolutely demand that the Saigon administration and the United States act in the same way.
  The Chinese side highly appraises the unremitting efforts of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam and the Government of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam for the thorough implementation of the Paris agreement and points out emphatically that the Chinese Government and people firmly support the south Vietnamese people in their just struggle for the realization of the Vietnamese people's fundamental national rights and the south Vietnamese people's right to self-determination as well as the consolidation of the fruits of victory of their war of resistance, and firmly support the six-point proposal and the other reasonable propositions for the settlement of the internal affairs of south Viet Nam put forward by the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam in the spirit of national reconciliation and concord.
  Both sides condemn the acts in contravention and violation of the Paris agreement committed by the Saigon administration with the support and connivance of the United States. The Saigon administration must immediately stop all its nibbling operations, cease bombing and strafing areas controlled by the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam, return all the civilian personnel illegally detained by it and ensure the south Vietnamese people all democratic rights and freedoms. The United States should shoulder its unshakable responsibility for the implementation of the Paris agreement, which it has signed. The south Vietnamese people are entitled to take all resolute measures to check the Saigon administration's violations of the Paris agreement, protect the life and property of the people, defend the liberated areas and uphold the Paris agreement on Viet Nam.
  Both sides consider that at present, the situation in Indochina is undergoing great changes more and more favourable to the revolutionary struggles of the three Indochinese peoples.
  Both sides are highly pleased that, under the leadership of the National United Front of Cambodia with Head of State Samdech Norodom Sihanouk as its Chairman and the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia with Samdech Penn Nouth as its Prime Minister and Mr. Khieu Samphan its Deputy Prime Minister, the heroic Cambodian people have won tremendous victories in their struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. They firmly support the five-point declaration made by Samdech Norodom Sihanouk on March 23, 1970 as well as the solemn and just stand taken by the National United Front of Cambodia and the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia for the settlement of the Cambodian question.   The U.S. Government must stop its support for the traitorous Lon Nol clique and its interference in the internal affairs of Cambodia. The Cambodian question should be settled by the Cambodian people themselves free from foreign interference.
  Both sides warmly hail the great victory won by the heroic Lao people in their struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation under the leadership of the Lao Patriotic Front with Prince Souphanou-vong as its Chairman, warmly welcome the signing of the Vientiane Agreement on Restoring Peace and Achieving National Concord in Laos and the protocol to the agreement and resolutely support all the efforts of the I.4io Patriotic Front and the Alliance of Patriotic Neutralist Forces in Laos for the thorough realization of national concord and proceeding to the building of a peaceful, independent, neutral, democratic, unified and prosperous Laos.
  Both sides consider that, at present, the international situation is continuing to develop in a direction favourable to the revolutionary struggles of the people of the world. Countries want independence, nations want liberation, and the people want revolution — this has become an irresistible trend of history. Both sides voice their resolute support to the struggles of the people of the Arab countries, of the Asian, African and Latin American countries and of the whole world against imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, Zionism and imperialist hegemony, and for peace, national independence, democracy, and social progress.
  Both sides note with satisfaction that the great friendship and militant unity between the Chinese and Vietnamese peoples, which have stood the test of protracted revolutionary struggles, are growing stronger and developing continuously. The Gratuitous Economic Assistance Agreement for 1974 concluded between the Government of the People's Republic of China and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam is a most vivid expression of the good relations between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of South Viet Nam. Both sides pledge to further strengthen their mutual support and cooperation and endeavour to foster this great friendship and close militant unity so that they will be unbreakable and everlasting.
  Both sides are glad that the complete success of the official friendly visit to the People's Republic of China by the Delegation of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam led by Lawyer Nguyen Huu Tho, President of the Presidium of the Central Committee of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation and President of the Advisory Council of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam, has made an important contribution towards further strengthening the friendly relations between the people of China and south Viet Nam.
