Disengagement in Europe (Pugwash Symposium, April 1988)

Conference paper


The December 1987 Treaty on intermediate nuclear forces represents a tremendous opportunity to push towards larger cuts in the nuclear arsenals. The INF Treaty not only has generated increased public expectations about, and renewed political commitment to, nuclear arms reductions; but it also has established three crucial precedents that will make further agreements easier; the complete removal and dismantling of entire classes of modern nuclear weapons; asymmetry in the reductions, wherein the side starting with more gives up more; and extensive and intrusive provisions for on-site verification.
