December 1980, No 03641/10107

To the CPSU Central Committee

On the reception in Moscow of a delegation
of the US National Academy of Sciences’
Committee for International Security and Arms
Control

As we have already reported, at meetings with the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow in June this year and in the United States in August this year the US National Academy of Sciences [NAS] proposed that we organise bilateral exchanges of opinion concerning issues of strengthening peace, international security and disarmament. The secretary of the NAS for foreign relations, T. Malone, believes that such exchanges will be one way to restore bilateral meetings between scientists which were broken off at the beginning of this year by the American side.

In May 1980 the NAS established within its organisation a Committee for International Security and Arms Control made up of 16 people headed by the president of the California Institute of Technology, Marvin L. Goldberger. The Committee intends to establish and maintain contacts with Soviet scientists and also with academies in Western Europe and Japan. The members of the Committee believe that issues of international security should be considered not only via governmental channels but also through contacts between scientists in order to seek a way to regulate the issues that arise in the field of security and transmit the corresponding recommendations to their own governments without giving them excessive publicity.
