  • Description

    The United States and the Soviet Union signed a treaty limiting the size of peaceful nuclear explosions on Friday (28 May).

    The signing took place at a Kremlin ceremony timed to co-inside with a similar event in Washington.

    Communist Party Chief, Leonid Brezhnev signed for the Soviet Union and President Ford for the United States.

    In a short speech, Mr. Brezhnev said the treaty, concluded in Moscow, in April, was a useful instrument which would be rigidly adhered to by the Soviet Union.

    U.S. ambassador, Walter Stoessel represented the United States and eight members of the Soviet Union's ruling Politburo watched as Mr. Brezhnev signed the treaty, which limits underground explosions to 150 kilotons and provided for on-site inspection.

    The Soviet leader clinked champagne glasses with Mr. Stoessel and asked him to pass on his greetings to President Ford.

    President Ford termed the agreement historic.
