President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev concluded their fourth summit Wednesday with scant gains on strategic arms control, but they said progress on improving U.S.-Soviet relations had, in Gorbachev's words, "dealt a blow at the foundation of the Cold War." In a joint communique and in separate news conferences, the leaders of the world's superpowers said they had also made concrete progress on human rights and regional conflicts.

President Reagan, saluting "momentous events" taking place in U.S.-Soviet relations, proclaimed Friday that a new Western-led "crusade for freedom . . . is well under way." Reagan, reporting on the results of his five-day visit to Moscow, said that he and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev had made "tangible progress" toward an agreement to scale down the superpowers' arsenals of long-range nuclear missiles and bombers.

President Reagan said Monday that he and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev made "important additional strides" last week toward a treaty reducing long-range nuclear weapons but added that "we still do not know" when such a pact might be completed. "We're moving forward on the treaty and its associated documents with renewed vigor and cooperation," he told an international conference of natural gas producers and users.

Vice President George Bush, appearing once again to subtly distance himself from President Reagan, said Thursday that the United States should insist on more substantive Soviet compliance with human rights accords before agreeing to another summit meeting. "We have an objective standard--an objective standard they agreed to, the Helsinki Final Act, and I would press for the maximum adherence to that," Bush said.

U.S. and Soviet negotiators Tuesday completed five months of talks that chalked up unprecedented progress toward verifying agreements limiting nuclear tests, U.S. officials said. The achievements included exchange of detailed data, the first ever provided by the Soviet Union, on five large nuclear blasts conducted by each side since 1978. Preparations are now almost completed for Soviet personnel to monitor a U.S.

The Soviet Union on Wednesday invited representatives of the world community to witness the start of its destruction of intermediate- and shorter-range nuclear missiles. Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze told the U.N. General Assembly that the event will take place "in just a few days." He did not say where the destruction will take place.

Former Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger said Tuesday that the Soviets are likely to cheat on the proposed medium-range missile treaty, as they have on past arms control accords, but he urged the Senate to ratify it anyway. There is no reason to believe that the Soviet Union has changed its ways, said Weinberger, who resigned as defense secretary in November after seven years in the post.
