  • Description

    THE STRATEGIC LIMITATION TALKS (SALT) BETWEEN DELEGATES FORM THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOVIET UNION CONTINUED AT THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN VIENNA ON MONDAY (20 APRIL).

    THE TALKS -- THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IN THE HISTORY OF ARMS CONTROL AND DISARMAMENT NEGOTIATIONS -- BEGIN LAST WEEK.

    THE UNITED STATES DELEGATION, LED BY MR. GERARD SMITH, WERE THE FIRST TO ARRIVE FOR MONDAY'S DISCUSSIONS, AND WERE GREETED BY THE UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO AUSTRIA.

    DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, VLADMIR SEMYONOV, HEADED THE SOVIET DELEGATION. MONTHS OF NEGOTIATION LIE AHEAD OF THE TWO SUPER NUCLEAR POWERS AND PROGRESS ON THE HIGHLY COMPLEX SUBJECT OF CURBING THE NUCLEAR STRATEGIC ARMS RACE IS EXPECTED TO BE SLOW. BOTH THE SOVIET AND AMERICAN DELEGATIONS HAVE EMPHASISED THEIR WILLINGNESS TO REACH A REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION IN THE STRATEGIC ARMS SPHERE.

    A FURTHER ROUND OF TALKS IS EXPECTED TOWARDS THE END OF THIS WEEK AND THE DISCUSSIONS WILL CONTINUE IN VIENNA FOR THE NEXT THREE MONTHS. AFTER A SUMMER RECESS THE SALT TALKS ARE EXPECTED TO RESUME IN HELSINKI.
