The Second Round Of SALT Talks Scheduled WASHINGTON (AP) -- The United States and Russia have decided to hold .the second round of the strategic-arms-)im- tation talks (SALT) in Geneva, jrobahly in October, sources lave disclosed. A formal announcement Is expected in Washington · and Moscow today. Plans for the second phase of the bilateral disarmament talks came as the'first-phase interim agreement neared final approval in'the U.S. Congress. The House and Senate are expected 1 to vote this week on a five-year moratorium on offen sive missiles. A defensive-mis sile treaty was approved by the Senate on Aug. 3. The chief U S negotiator Ge rard C; Smith, has'said the'sec- ond phase talks will consider limitations oh bombers and forward base systems and a more precise and permanent limits tion on missiles Administration spokesman, including Smith have said they would not accept the first phase interim agreement on missiles as a permarienfso'lutldn The SALT talks started in the fall of 1969 with meetings held alternately in Helsinki and Vienna. The United States felt the arrangement was both cumbersome and costly and considers Geneva a better location. ANNOUNCED BY NIXON The first phase agreements were announced during Presi dent Nixon's trip .to Moscow on May 26 While the offensive missile moratorium is only an i n t e,r i m agreement, Nixon wants Congress to act On It before the second round of talks begins. The United States and the Soviet Union are limited under the interim agreement to those offensive missiles already built or under construction as of July 1. The defensive treaty limits each country to two anti-ballls^ tic-missile defense systems, one around the capital city and the second at an offensive-missile site. Some concern has been ex pressed, notably by Sen. : Henry M. Jackson; D-Wash., that the Soviet Union would Have a nu : merical superiority in missile, approximately 2,360 to 1.710. over the United States under the interim agreement. The administration main tains, however, that the United States will be able to employ more warheads on its missiles because of: an advantage in missile technology. Nevertheless. Jackson has proposed an amendment to require missile equality In any future agreements, and the administration has gone along. Wlrephotc Dow had Friday.
