  • Description

    HELSINKI HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS THE MEETING PLACE FOR DELEGATES WHO WILL ATTEND THE STRATEGIC ARMS LIMITATIONS TALKS (SALT) NEXT WEEK.

    THE TALKS, WHICH OPEN ON NOVEMBER 17, WERE SIMULTANEOUSLY ANNOUNCED IN MOSCOW AND WASHINGTON ON OCTOBER 25. THEIR AIM IS TO PUT A CURB ON THE ARMS RACE WHICH BOTH SUPER POWERS ARE FINDING INCREASINGLY EXPENSIVE.

    THE HELSINKI TALKS ARE BASICALLY BEING HELD TO PREPARE A PLATFORM FOR FUTURE DETAILED DISCUSSIONS WHICH MAY CONTINUE IN FINLAND, OR BE TRANSFERRED TO VIENNA OR GENEVA.

    SO FAR THE AMERICAN NEGOTIATOR HAS NOT BEEN NAMED, BUT THE SOVIET UNION HAS CONFIRMED THAT MR. VLADIMIR SEMENOV, THE DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER WILL HEAD THE RUSSIAN DELEGATION.

    MR. SEMENOV, 58, HAS LONG EXPERIENCE IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS. HE HAS BEEN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER SINCE 1955 AND WAS A MEMBER OF THE SOVIET DELEGATION TO THE UNITED NATIONS FROM 1961 TO 1963.
