SALT Updates

January 1978
National Review;1/6/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p16
The article focuses on developments relevant to the SALT agreement between the U.S. and the Soviet Union related to the control of nuclear weapons. Under the SALT agreement, the U.S. devised a strategy to lower the restrictions on delivery systems in 1974, which in fact raises the Soviet limit of the use of nuclear weapons. But, the new agreement excludes Backfire bombers from Soviet totals. The U.S. has also agreed to delay the development of the MX mobile missile program. The nation also plans to restrict the range of the hedge-hopping cruises. The SALT agreement will also help the U.S. to strengthen its international relations with other countries.
