Abstract : Mutual and balanced force reduction, the most complicated and intriguing of all arms control measures, is examined within the context of detente and the NATO strategy of flexible response. NATO and Warsaw Pact propositions are analyzed. A well founded assumption of probable negotiation outcome is postulated. The strategic implications of MBFR for NATO are then discussed in this light.
