Questions in Moscow

Sponsored by American Foreign Policy Council
September 1, 1991

Arms control, military conversion, and the Soviet’s internal balance of power were the primary issues discussed during an AFPC-sponsored trip to Moscow last winter.  William Schneider, Jr., Chairman of President Bush’s General Advisory Committee on Arms Control, and Sven Kraemer, Director of Policy at the American Security Council, were AFPC’s representatives to meet with policy makers in Moscow.  Officials they met include General Nikita Chaldimov and Sergei Stankevich, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.

 While they talked about the general political crisis, the topics of most concern during the discussions were the problems of military conversion and arms control.  How quickly can military conversion take place? Is the military willing to give up control of their part of the industrial sector?

Dr. Schneider is former Undersecretary of State, and Kraemer previously served as Director of Arms Control in the National Security Council during the Reagan Administration.
