West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev signed an agreement here Tuesday calling on the United States and the Soviet Union to seek a 50% reduction in strategic nuclear missiles. The two leaders also urged a new "balance of conventional forces" at a lower level in Europe and a worldwide ban on chemical weapons. They agreed that the goal should be to reduce armaments to a level sufficient for defense "but not for attack." "Above all," the declaration said, "the two sides consider it necessary to rule out the capability of armed forces for launching surprise attack and initiating large-scale offensive action."
