The signing of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty was a monumental occasion of the Cold War as well as the Atomic Age. In the decades after World War II, the United States and Soviet Union embarked on a global relationship that encompassed an extraordinary degree of caution, threat, and deceit.
Armed with nuclear weapons, both embarked on an arm’s race and in international diplomacy in the hopes of out doing the other in gaining spheres of influence throughout the world. It was a time when the whole world kept a keen eye on the diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Soviet Union. After watching the video above, conduct some research in the Reagan Administration’s work over the issue of nuclear weapons.
Next focus on the seemingly positive relationship between Reagan and Gorbachev. Based on the video and your research, how much of a factor was their relationship in negotiations over atomic weaponry? Lastly, how does Reagan’s signing of the treaty contrast or reinforce his stance on atomic weaponry with regard to U.S./Soviet relations?
