Strategic arms limitation talks

The Soviet Union and the United States have been engaged in bilateral Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) since late 1969. The first phase of the negotiations (SALT I) ended with the signing in Moscow on 26 May 1972 of two agreements: the Treaty on the Limitation of Anti-Ballistic Missile Systems (ABM Treaty), subsequently amended by a Protocol of 3 July 1974, and the Interim Agreement on Certain Measures with Respect to the Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, with a Protocol attached. Both agreements entered into force on 3 October 1972.
