WASHINGTON--The strategic arms
limitation treaty (SALT) should not be
"held hostage" to the issue of Soviet
combat troops in Cuba, Senate Majority
Leader Robert Byrd declared yester-
However, the West Virginia
Democrat acknowledged that if the
U.S.-Soviet treaty were to'be voted on
"in today's .environment, it would have
< a rough time" and would fall short of
the two-thirds majority needed for
BYRD SAID at a news conference he
plans to start floor debate on SALT II on.
Nov. 1-later than originally expec-
ted-and hopes that by then, "the dust
should have settled" on the Cuban con-
Byrd also said he hopes the Senate
can complete action on SALT II by
Thanksgiving Day, when he expects
Congress to adjourn for the rest of the
year. Byrd has opposed letting the
treaty debate spill over into the 1980
When asked about U.S. intelligence
reports that between 2,000 and 3,000
Soviet combat troops are stationed in
Cuba, Byrd answered: "Let's keep
cool, let's keep our heads"
'THE SENATOR said many questions
remain about why the troops are in
Cuba and how long they have been
there. But he said it is clear that they do
not pose an immediate threat to the
The president's National Security
Adviser, Zbigniew Brezinski, in com-
ments to editors Friday that were
released by the White House yesterday,
said the Soviet troop incident bore no
resemblance to the 1962 Cuban missile
It should not be allowed to interfere
with the ratification of SALT II, he ad-
"WE ARE NOT dealing with a
strategic crisis; nor are we dealing"
with a direct and overt military threat
directed at the United States," Brezin-
ski told the editors.
Byrd's remarks closely parallel
comments made by President Carter
on Friday. Carter vowed to use "firm
diplomacy" to resolve the question but
cautioned against "panic" at home.'
Since the disclosure a week ago that a
Soviet combat brigade was located in
Cuba, some senators considered crucial
to ratification of SALT II have
threatened to withhold their support un-
til the issue of Russian troops is
HOWEVER, BYRD said SALT II
should be approved or rejected strictly,
on the basis of whether it improves U.S.
"If it's in the security interest of this
country, why should it be held hostage
to the Cuban situation?" Byrd asked.
"We must not cut off our noses to spite
Byrd alsosaid he did not fault U.S. in-
telligence for failing to detect the
presence of Soviet combat troops,
which may have been in Cuba for
"TO DETERMINE the nationality of
an individual who's wearing a Cuban
uniform is extremely difficult," he
said. "It would probably require
eyeball to eyeball intelligence."
However, he added that con-
sideration should be given to the
resumption of reconnaissance flights
On other issues, Byrd said he agreed
with the assessment of many of his
West Virginia constituents that Carter,
although a good man, had not done very
well on domestic issues.
"THEY THINK he's a good and
honorable man, but they're not
satisfied as to his performance and they
have doubts about their perception of
his leadership," Byrd said. He added
that he shared that view.
As to reports that the family of Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) had lifted
its objection to his possible run for the
presidency, Byrd answered that Ken-
nedy "has given a signal that keeps his

pretted the latest reports as an in-

an open challenge to Carter for the

"Any 16-year-old boy that's in the

not about to discount the possibility that
he is still alive."
