    Background: SYNOPSIS: In Ottawa, the Secretary General of NATO opens an eight day visit to Canada with an address before the Canadian Club on proposals for east west disarmament talks:
    HE SAYS: THE GOAL WE ARE MAKING FOR GENERAL IS CONTROLLED DISARMAMENT THE ONLY SAFEGUARD OF A DURABLE PEACE. HOWEVER THE ATTITUDE OF THE SOVIET UNION TOWARDS OUR PROPOSALS WHETHER FOR THE PREVENTION OF SURPRISE ATTACKS OF THE CESSATION OF NUCLEAR PRODUCTION FOR MILITARY ENDS LEAVES US UNDER NO ILLUSIONS AS THE POSSIBILITY OF ACHIEVING THIS GENERAL CONTROLLED DISARMAMENT IN A SINGLE STAGE. WE MUST THEREFORE VISUALIZE SLOWER PROGRESS IN THIS DIRECTION, A MORE GRADUAL RESTORATION OF CONFIDENCE. THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD OF DISCUSSIONS DURING WHICH THERE IS LITTLE OR NO CHANCE THAT A START ON DISARMAMENT WILL BE MADE THE SECURITY AND SOLIDARITY OF THE ALLIANCE MUST BE MAINTAINED.

    WHEN DEFINING OUR POSITION REGARDING THE INITIAL STAGE OF NEGOTIATIONS WE MUST THEREFORE CONSTANTLY HAVE THIS IN MIND. IN OTHER WORDS THERE ARE I BELIEVE LIMITS TO THE CONCESSIONS WE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO MAKE.
