Paris Peace Accords

Following years of negotiations, the Paris Peace Accords were concluded on January 27, 1973, ending formal U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War and temporarily suspending the fighting between South Vietnam and communist North Vietnam and its Viet Cong allies. The Paris Peace Accords provided for a cease-fire, the withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam, and negotiations for a political settlement to the fighting that had wracked Vietnam for years. However, communist and South Vietnamese forces renewed the armed conflict as the Americans withdrew, and by the spring of 1975 the communists gained control of the country with the fall of Saigon.
