Armistice Agreement in Vietnam

A new era began in Vietnam. To decades of war A ceasefire agreement was signed between the United States and North Vietnam earlier this year. The American military units withdrew from the north of divided Vietnam and the country was able to devote itself to peaceful tasks again for the first time.
In the summer of South American Chile, a state of emergency broke out, culminating in a bloody military coup on September 11, which at the beginning alone killed around 3,000 Chileans. Salvador Allende's attempt to establish democracy in Chile had failed. Economically, the country was very unstable due to the American and international boycotts. The military under general Augusto Pinochet took power in the country that many Chileans left because of numerous human rights violations and increasing torture. The Chilean poet and Nobel Prize winner died on September 23, and his funeral, which was attended by thousands of people, became the first open protest against the military junta.
1973 was also marked by the first major oil crisis. The oil price was raised by 70 percent by OPEC, and the effects were felt worldwide.
Asia and Europe moved closer together: in Istanbul the President opened theTurkey, Fahri Korutürk, the bridge over the Bosphorus. In America, the New York “World Trade Center” was opened in the same year.
