 Modern History Sourcebook: Soviet Statement: Friendship and Co-operation Between the Soviet Union and Other Socialist ...

During the Johnson presidency the United States and the Soviet Union negotiated the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, concluded several accords of lesser magnitude, and managed to avoid confrontation during a period of instability in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, but it was not a period of substantial forward movement in U.S.-Soviet relations.
