US Violations of Paris Agreement

US Violations of Paris Agreement

Article 4 of the Paris Agreement states: "The United States will not continue its military involvement or intervene in the internal affairs of South Vietnam."

On February 4, the Nixon Administration sought Congress approval for $US 1,450 million for fresh military supplies for the Thieu regime for fiscal year 1975. Between January 28, 1973 to January 25, 1974 the US sent 700,000 tons of ordinance and guns and 900 tanks and armoured cars to South Vietnam. Some 50 F-5Es will be sent to Thieu in 1974-75.

The US admits to an official presence of 5,104 men in the south, but the Vietnamese changed that there are 20,000 disguised military advisers. The US admits that these men service Thieu's army: in logistic backing, technical training, communications and running repairs on military equipment.
