  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOVIET UNION TODAY (MONDAY) AGREED TO ENTER INTO FULL TALKS ON ARMS CONTROL IN VIENNA ON APRIL 16 NEXT YEAR. THE ANNOUNCEMENT CAME AT THE END OF FIVE WEEKS OF DISCUSSION BETWEEN THE TWO WORLD POWERS IN HELSINKI.

    A STATEMENT RELEASED AT THE END OF THE HELSINKI TALKS SAID THAT THE TWO COUNTRIES WOULD HOLD THEIR SECOND SERIES OF STRATEGIC ARMS LIMITATION TALKS (S.A.L.T.) IN VIENNA NEXT YEAR AND RETURN TO HELSINKI FOR THE THIRD PHASE OF THE DISCUSSIONS.

    THE COMMUNIQUE SAID THAT AS A RESULT OF THE FIVE WEEK LONG DISCUSSIONS EACH COUNTRY WAS BETTER ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE OTHER. THE AGREEMENT IS SEEN AS A MAJOR STEP BY THE TWO POWERS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE OTHER, AND AS A MAJOR STEP TOWARDS EASING THE THREAT OF A WORLD NUCLEAR WAR. THE COMING CONFERENCE IN VIENNA WILL WORK TOWARDS PRODUCING A TREATY LIMITING DEVELOPMENT OF STRATEGIC WEAPONS AND THIS COULD BE EXPECTED TO LEAD TO AN EVENTUAL CUT BACK ON ROCKET STOCKPILES.
