  • Description

    The Soviet Foreign Minister, Andrei Gromyko, arrived in Washington on Wednesday (21 September) to begin a new round of talks with American Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, to limit strategic arms. The current nuclear arms control agreement between the two countries runs on October the third, but the United States has already announced its intention to extend the pact beyond the deadline while continuing negotiations for a new treaty. They hope the Soviet Union will do the same.

    SYNOPSIS: The talks at the US State Department began in marked contrast to the ones in Moscow last March, which ended abruptly without success. Soviet leaders have accused the United States of attempting to gain a one-sided advantage in the talks. The main issues still dividing both sides are believed to be the Soviet insistence on limiting the low flying American Cruise missile and the American concern over the Soviet "Backfire' bomber. Despite the Soviet feelings about American motives, Mr Gromyko said a new pact was attainable. Both Mr Gromyko and Me Vance described their first five hour session as good and business-like.

    During a brief interlude in the talks on Thursday (22 September) Mr Gromyko talked to reporters about the substance of the discussions.
