UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. () -
Canadian Foreign Secretary Paul
Martin warned yesterday that ef-
forts to open negotiations to end
the war in Vietnam are "doomed
to failure" unless the United
States halts its bombing of North
In a speech to the UN General
Assembly, Martin said that a ces-
sation of the bombing "is a mat-
ter of first priority if we are to
start the process of de-escalation
and to open the door to the con-

the 122-nation assembly that a

to have any hope of success," he
said, "as if the other side did not

efforts through the International

china-India and Poland are the
other commission members - to
help "to lead the parties to the
conflict in Vietnam to the con-

every way to achieve the estab-
lishment of an equitable peace in
In another speech to the As-
sembly, Argentine Foreign Minis-
ter Nicanor Costa Mendez called
for active UN participation in the
search for peace in Southeast
It is unreasonable, he said, "to
contend that the international or-
ganization, could remain alien to
such an obvious case of a breach
of both peace and security."
Both Canada and Argentina
are members of the UN Security
Council, which discussed the
Vietnam war without success in
Martin threw cold water on the
possibility of any UN involvement.
He pointed out that some of the
key parties to the war are not
represented here, and contended
that "the great powers are di-
vided on the causes of the con-
flict and the measures required
to terminate it."
LAGOS, Nigeria-Nigerian forces
shelled the Biafran capital, Enugu,
after capturing three towns close
to it, a high Nigerian federal army
source said Wednesday night.
People were reported leaving the
secessionist capital as the federal
army moved closer against stiff
resistance, he added.
A broadcast earlier In the day
from Radio Nigeria said the troops
were moving their artillery within
The Lagos broadcast told of con-
fusion in Enugu as residents fled
the city despite repeated Biafra
radio pleas to fight "house to
house, street by street."
LA PAZ, Bolivia-The Bolivian
army announced yesterday that
Roberto "Coco" Peredo, Bolivian
guerrilla leader, was one of three
rebels killed Tuesday in a gun-
fight with federal troops.
The other two men were iden-
tified as "Antonio," believed to be
a Cuban, and "Julio," believed to
be a Bolivian. The army denied
rumors that one of those killed

McNamara, before leaving Wash-

again the extent of the military
men's differences with the John-
son administration over conduct
of the war.
