Basically the partition of Indochina and the creation of a DMZ


The Geneva Accords established the right for North Vietnam to exist as an independent country, with a 3000m Demilitarised Zone between the North and South along the 17th Parallel

Other agreements were that there would be free movement between North and South for 100 days

That all French Troops would move to positions south of the DMZ

That neither side should join an alliance or seek military re-enforcement
