Shortly after taking office, President Richard M. Nixon announced a policy that heralded the coming end to US combat in Southeast Asia and a simultaneous strengthening of South Vietnam's ability to defend itself.
On 3 Apr 1969, Nixon proposed to begin the process of Vietnamization as part of the new strategy. On 8 June 1969 the Midway Conference was held and upon completion of talks South Vietnam, and US heads of state announced the initial withdrawal of US troops.

The option for further withdrawals was to be geared to the improvement and modernization of the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces, developments at the Peace Talks in Paris, and the status of enemy capabilities and activities.
