Brezhnev asks arms imits
Seeks European
troop cutbacks
HELSINKI, Finland (P) -- Soviet leader Leonid
4v Brezhnev called yesterday for a reduction of
° :. armaments in central Europe as the next step
in East-West detente but said the delicate pro-
cess must be based on noninterference in each
other's internal affairs.
At the same time, Turkey turned down Presi-
dent Ford's offer of $50 million in exchange for
the reopening of American bases, Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger announced.
THE 68-year-old general secretary of the So-
viet Communist party addressed 34 other leaders
of Europe and North America on the second day
of the European security conference, a pet Soviet
project for the past two decades.
1 _ The Soviet Union and its East European satel-
lites have billed the supersummit, the biggest
gathering of world leaders since the Congress of
Vienna in 1814-15, as a salvation for a continent
drenched with blood through centuries of war.
Brezhnev stressed this theme when he urged
the leaders to give high priority to a search for
"ways to reduce armed forces and armaments
in central Europe without diminishing the secur-
ity of anyone."
BUT HE cautioned that the whole process of
detente which helped bring the conference about
would be endangered if any of the nations rep-
resented here interfered in the internal affairs
of another.
Brezhnev said the noninterference clause is a
major pillar of the nonbinding statement of prin-
ciples the leaders are to sign Friday evening at
the end of the conference.
"No one should try to dictate to other peoples,
on the basis of foreign policy considerations of
one kind or another, the manner in which they
ought to manage their internal affairs," the So-
