November 18, 1972 lic of Vietnam, with the concurrence of the PRG of South Vietnam, and the US Government with the concurrence of the Government of the Republic of Vietnam (Thieu administration) should sign that agreement to rapidly restore peace in Vietnam, In the draft agreement, North Vietnam had proposed a cessation of war throughout Vietnam, a ceasefire in South Vietnam, an end to all US military involvement in Vietnam, a total withdrawal from South Vietnam of troops of the US and those of the foreign countries allied with the US and with the Republic of Vietnam, and the return of all captured and detained personnel of the parties. From the enforcement of the ceasefire to the in- stallation of the government formed after a free and democratic genera! election, the two present administrations in South Vietnam would remain in existence with their respective domestic and external functions. These two administrations would immediately hold consultations with a view to the exercise of the South Vietnamese people's right to self-determination, achieving national concord, ensuring the democratic liberties of the South Vietnamese people, and forming an id- ministration of national concord which would have the task of promo ting the South Vietnamese parties' implementation of the signed agreements and organising a general election in South Vietnam. The two South Vietnamese parties would together settle the internal matters of South Vietnam within three months after the ceasefire had come into effect.
