BONN — A senior Soviet official declared here Friday that he doubts that a summit between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev will take place as planned this year unless the United States changes its arms control policies.
Valentin M. Falin, chief of the Novosti news agency, told a news conference that the Reagan Administration's apparent decision to abandon the SALT II agreement would decrease the chances of second meeting between the two leaders.
In Washington, White House spokesman Edward P. Djerejian brushed off Falin's assertion, according to the Reuters news agency.
"We do still proceed on the assumption . . . that there will be a summit in the United States in '86 followed by a summit in Moscow," Djerejian said.
Falin said that Moscow wants concrete results from a summit but that the Reagan Administration appeared not to be interested in any agreements.
