    KISSINGER: "Those arguments are totally false in every detail. They have no merit whatsoever, and I will now explain why."



    SECOND EXCERPT: KISSINGER: "One, a general exchange between the President and the Soviet leadership which will review the international situation, try to identify areas of possible disagreement, and attempt to minimise the consequences of disagreement. As well as to identify areas of possible co-operative action and work out the means of this co-operation. Secondly, to deal with the most complex, and most serious problem of the modern period -- which is the control of the nuclear arms race."

    Background: The American Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, told newsmen in Washington on Monday (24 June) that there had been no secret changes made to the 1972 Strategic Arms Limitation Agreement. Senator Henry Jackson, a leading contender for the Democrat Presidential nomination in 1976, made the charge. He said substantive changes had been made to the advantage of the Soviet Union. He said they had been allowed more nuclear armaments than had been announced publicly, and the United States, fewer.

    At the news conference, Dr. Kissinger denied the charges. This film contains two excerpts from the conference. a transcript follows.
