November 1977
National Review;11/11/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 44, p1283
The article focuses on chief U.S. delegate Arthur Goldberg's desire to avoid confrontation with the Soviet Union at the post-Helsinki talks in Belgrade, Serbia. Goldberg has also asked that he be given the freedom to pressurize the Soviets on particular cases of human rights violations. The Soviets too have responded by denouncing the U.S. practice of denying visas to Soviet labor leaders. The Soviets also blamed the U.S. for disruptions of performances by Russian musicians in the U.S. and accused Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty of broadcasting subversive and hostile propaganda, with the demand that this too be stopped.
