League Announces Support for Nuclear Weapons Freeze

On December 9, 1983, LWVUS announced its support for a bilateral, mutually verifiable freeze on the testing, production, and deployment of nuclear weapons followed by reduction of these weapons.

Action resulting from the new position include:

Support for a comprehensive test ban;

Support for negotiations to prohibit deployment of anti-ballistic weapons;

Opposition to the deployment of space weapons that would violate the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty;

Urging the merger and resumption of the INS and START negotiations.

The League strongly supports both multilateral and bilateral negotiations to achieve agreement in all arms control areas,
