Jack Matlock, American Ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1987-1991 and a member of the National Security Council Staff in 1986, presents the American side’s view of Reykjavik, pointing out that for the US, arms control was a part of a broader agenda, which included human rights, while the Soviets were prepared for major concessions on arms control, but not in other areas.
