Video is about the Cold War Strategic Arms negotiations during the late 70's early 80's. Moscow and Washington were clashing over human rights. The SS20 alarmed the NATO allies, especially the West Germans with a range of 3000 miles these missiles could hit their capitals. The SALT 2 negotiations did not include the SS20 discussion. The super powers had agreed new limits on strategic arms in June 1979 completing the SALT 2 Treaty. SALT 2 Agreement made it possible to limit the arms race, and was very important to the Soviet Union, because at that time the expenditure on all weapons was having a negative effect on growth of production and the living standards of the population.
