Arms control negotiations : U.S.-Soviet treaties
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Examines Soviet violations of U.S.-Soviet arms control agreements.
In 1984 President Ronald Reagan, acting in response to congressional inquiries, presented a detailed study of Soviet noncompliance with arms control treaties. The study detailed multiple violations and probable violations of past U.S.-Soviet agreements, raising deep concerns about the practicality of arms control negotiations. While it was universally agreed that the violations should not be ignored, some observers criticized President Reagan for going public with the allegations, arguing that the issue could be best resolved through quiet diplomacy within established diplomatic channels. In this episode of American Interests, Congressman Jim Courter of New Jersey and Noel Gayler, former director of the National Security Agency and Commander of US Pacific Command, discuss the alleged Soviet arms control violations. Do these violations pose a significant threat to American national security, and how should the U.S. proceed with arms control negotiations?
