    The Nixon Doctrine was one of many attempts by the president to encourage "Vietnamization" or withdrawing US soldiers and turning over defense duties to the South Vietnamese troops.

    Explanation:

    The expression Vietnamization in the context of the US withdrawing its forces from the Vietnam War means that Americans were leaving the territory so the conflict between North and South Vietnam would be handled by themselves.

    President Richard Nixon issued a statement in 1969 where he announced that the US had been talking with South Vietnam leaders and American troops were going to be substituted by southvietnamese troops in the areas of the conflict. By this time American pacifists and veterans groups were massively protesting against the continuous presence of the US in the war.
