In May 1972, President Richard Nixon traveled to Moscow to sign the historic Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT) with USSR General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev. It followed Nixon’s February 1972 trip to China, and set the stage for the January 1973 Paris Peace Accords which ended the Vietnam War.

The panel featured former members of the National Security Council staff, who discussed their behind-the-scenes efforts, and how Nixon’s diplomacy with the USSR included detente and arms control. The panel included Phil Odeen, Jan Lodal, Arthur Hartman and Winston Lord, and was moderated by Fox News National Security Analyst KT McFarland.

Presented in partnership with the National Archives and Records Administration.
