Title: Future of arms control after the Iceland Summit
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Luttwak, Edward; Frye, Alton
Abstract: Host Peter Krogh and guests discuss U.S.-Soviet arms control negotiations and violations of existing treaties.
Description: Since the beginning of the atomic age, fear of nuclear destruction has hung over all the nations of the earth. This fear had the potential of being reduced after significant talks at the Reykjavik Summit between President Reagan and Premier Mikhail Gorbachev in the capital of Iceland in October 1986. Just weeks after the summit, military strategist Edward Luttwak and arms expert Alton Fry discuss the future of arms control and implications for American military strategy with moderator Peter Krogh. Though negotiations failed in Reykjavik due to Reagan’s attachment to the Strategic Defense Initiative, the ground broken there facilitated the negotiations of Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty a little more than one year later. Yet, the quest for a nuclear-disarmed world remains an urgent global security priority.
