Abstract : There are three sets of arms control negotiations which could have a long range political impact on Europe. These are the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE), the Mutual and Balanced Force Reduction (MBFR) talks, and Theater Nuclear Forces/Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (TNF/INF) talks. In each set of negotiations, there are factors encouraging arms control as well as impediments to arms control. The weight of these factors and impediments directly affect the prospects for mutual understanding and ultimate agreement.
