Cold War Files: All Units: Events: Thieu Accepts Terms of Peace Agreement

January 9, 1973
Thieu Accepts Terms of Peace Agreement

All remaining differences are resolved between Kissinger and Le Duc Tho.

President Thieu, once again threatened by Nixon with a total cut-off of American aid to South Vietnam, now unwillingly accepts the peace agreement, which still allows North Vietnamese troops to remain in South Vietnam. Thieu labels the terms "tantamount to surrender" for South Vietnam.
