Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
yesterday said ratification of the SALT
II treaty must be coupled with sharply
increased defense spending to correct a
military balance he said is beginning to
"tilt ominously" against the United
Kissinger also linked his endor-
sement of the pact on a declaration
by the Senate calling the Soviets to task
for political adventurism around the
INTESTIMONY before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, he said
the pact is flawed with ambiguities
which must be corrected.
"Rarely in history has a nation so
passively accepted so radical a change
in the military balance," Kissinger
He said the balance has deteriorated
over the past 15 years and blamed it on
taken strategic doctrines, on domestic
turmoil caused by the Vietnam War and
on "choices of the present ad-
KISSINGER SAID he himself, must
accept some of the blame.
But he was especially critical of the
Carter administration for stopping
deployment of the B-1 bomber and the
neutron warhead, shutting -down the
Minuteman missile assembly line, and
slowing other strategic programs.
"After much reflection, I have con-
cluded I can support ratification only
with three conditions," Kissinger told
the committee.
"First, if it is coupled with a defense
program representing an obligatory
understanding between the Congress
and the president which overcomes on
an urgent basis the grave peril caused-
by the current military balance.
"SECOND, IF it is accompanied by
amendments - not requiring re-
negotiation - clearing up ambiguities
in the treaty, defining the status of the
protocol, the meaning of non-

"And third, if it is accompanied by a
vigorous expression of the Senate's
view of the linkage between SALT and
Soviet geopolitical conduct."
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
called Kissinger's proposals
"positive," noted Kissinger is "against
any amendments which would kill the
treaty" and predicted it would be
Hodding Carter said: "Although we
disagree with some of the points made
in Dr. Kissinger's analysis, we
welcome his general approach to the
SALT II agreement and his opposition
to its renegotiation or rejection." One
point of disagreement with Kissinger
was on his endorsement of a link bet-
ween SALT and Soviet behavior
elsewhere in the world.
Kissinger urged delaying ratification
until the next Congress if it takes that
long to put a commitment to a stepped-
up defense program into high gear.
But Sen. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.), told
Kissinger: "I don't believe it would
serve our interests to lay this over while
we fight over a suitable arms
and Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.),
Kissinger said that if his only choice
was to vote up or down on the treaty
without any force modernization
program he would vote no. Sen. George
McGovern (D-S.D.), told Kissinger his
proposals set too higha price for SALT.
"You offer not a formula for arms
reduction but arms escalation,"
McGovern said.
"I am not asking a price for SALT,"
Kissinger replied. "I am trying to in-
dicate a serious problem that has
developed over a long period of time,
and that has to be remedied with or
without SALT." He said the United
States should seek substantial arms
reductions in SALT III hut said they
