    The Strategic Arms
    Limitation Talks (S.A.L.T.) begin their third round in Helsinki on Monday (2nd
    November). The negotiations began in the Finnish capital a year ago, and
    continued in Vienna during the past summer. Both Russia and the United States
    are reported to be guardedly hopeful for results at Helsinki. The talks are some
    of the most complicated ever conducted by the two major nuclear powers.

    When the Vienna talks broke up in mid-August the two powers were said to have
    reached a measure of agreement on limiting numbers of intercontinental ballistic
    missiles, submarine missiles, and strategic bombers The trickiest problem the
    negotiators have faced in the past has been deciding which weapons should be
    considered tactical, and which strategic.

    The American delegates arrived in Helsinki on Friday night (30th October). They
    will commute between their lodging on the city outskirts and the Talks venues.

    The Talks will be held in turn at both the American and Russian embassies.

    The Russian delegation will be accommodated in the Merihotelli.

    A sophisticated press centre has been set up, and will provide facilities for
    100 journalists and correspondents. The centre is connected to an international
    teleprinter network which is already operating.
