#12 – Salt II Discussions with USSR

November 23-24, 1974

President Gerald R. Ford and General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev meet in Vladivostok, U.S.S.R. During this meeting, they confer on and sign a joint communiqué on the limitation of strategic offensive arms. By the end of their discussions, President Ford feels confident that “as soon as technicians had ironed out the few remaining problems, we would sign a SALT II accord.” This accord would continue the tradition of arms limitation set forth by the SALT I accord signed in May 1972.
