    Background: INTRODUCTION: The United States Secretary of State, Cyrus Vance, met with Soviet Communist leader, Leonid Brezhnev on Monday (28 March), the first top level talks between the two countries since President Jimmy Carter took office in January. The talks are expected to focus on arms limitation, after more than a year of stalemate.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Vance received a warm welcome from the Soviet leader. He told reporters earlier that he planned to present a comprehensive plan to substantially lower the number of strategic arms deployed by each country.

    Mr. Vance said he expected Soviet leaders to raise the issue of the Charter administration's human rights campaign, but he hoped it would not complicate the discussion of other topics. Earlier, the Soviet newspaper, Izvestia accused President Carter of "preaching Sunday sermons, divorced from real life."
    Soviet Foreign Minister, Andrei Gromyko, also attended the meeting. The leaders expect to cover a wide range of topics and Mr. Vance is prepared to extend his stay if necessary.
