Missile-curb talks resume in Geneva
Another round of US-Soviet talks on curbing medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe is starting today (Jan. 12).
The two sides adjourned for a Christmas and New Year's break after three weeks of preliminary talks and agreed to meet again for their seventh session.
By mutual agreement, both sides keep silent on the details of the discussions - the first arms bargaining negotiations between the superpowers in more than two years.
US Secretary of State Alexander Haig, now in Brussels for consultations on Poland with NATO allies, has stressed that the Geneva talks will continue under all but the most exceptional circumstances.
