The World

August 26, 1986

U.S. and Soviet experts conducted secret talks in Geneva on the question of nuclear-risk reduction centers, a joint statement released at the end of the session said. The statement said the two sides agreed to keep the substance of the talks confidential. It did not describe them as negotiations but as "consultations" to consider the question of such centers, which would try to reduce the risk of an accidental nuclear war. The one-day meeting was the second round of such discussions since they were agreed on at last November's summit between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev.
