MONTEREY — Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger, opening three days of meetings with NATO's Nuclear Planning Group, said today that the countries in the alliance appear to be reacting favorably to a proposed U.S. arms pact with the Soviet Union.
"I haven't sensed very much in the way of opposition to it," he said before a series of bilateral talks with defense ministers from several NATO countries. "Basically, as far as we can tell . . . the reaction among these countries is quite favorable."
