Peace talks between NBC and ABC followed the treaty signing by Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev and President Reagan after NBC inadvertently lifted the Soviet satellite feed of ABC's exclusive live shot from Moscow. An ABC spokeswoman said the network set up the exclusive footage of Soviet citizens watching the White House ceremony on a large screen set up in Moscow's Kalinin Prospekt Square. But shortly after the networks went live with Tuesday's White House ceremony, ABC's shot appeared on NBC. NBC spokesman Andrew Freedman said: "Vice presidents from our side have talked to vice presidents on their side and expressed our apologies."
