Kennedy and Nixon comment on the Indochina War, Quemoy and Matsu islands, and U-2 flights during their third debate.

Nixon and Kennedy debate questions regarding relations with Communists during the third Kennedy-Nixon Presidential Debate in the United States. Douglass Cater of Reporter magazine asks Republican candidate U.S. Vice President Richard M Nixon to comment whether there was a valid criticism of his statement of foreign policy. Nixon answers and states that the criticism is not valid. Regarding Indochina, he says that the U.S. would not have tolerated Indochina falling under Communist domination. And as a result of that the civil war there ended. He states that he supports the President's position and thinks that the President was correct in ordering the U-2 flights. Referring to Quemoy and Matsu he states that he objects to the constant reference to surrendering these islands. Democratic candidate Senator John F Kennedy disagrees with Nixon's statement on Indochina and states that reason Indochina was preserved was the Geneva Conference. On the question of the U-2 flights he states that he has never criticized them and never suggested stopping of espionage. On the question of keeping the Communists in doubt about the U.S. defending Quemoy and Matsu he states that the U.S. should meet its commitments to Formosa and the Pescadores. He concludes by saying that he disagrees with Nixon as Nixon is extending the administration's commitment.
