Shultz anxious to improve
U.S. relations with Soviets
WASHINGTON- The Reagan ad-
ministration is ready to explore ways to
improve U.S.-Soviet relations, but
won't be swayed by the "mood music"
emanating from the Kremlin's new
leadership, Secretary of State George
Shultz said yesterday.
Shultz, at a news conference, said the
United States was ready for a "careful,
thoughtful" dialogue with the Soviets.
However, he added, "The important
thing is a change in behavior" on their
Shultz and Vice President George
Bush met on Monday with the new
Soviet Communist party chief, Yuri
Andropov, while in Moscow for the
funeral of Leonid Brezhnev. He said
they were received with "great cour-
"Some people say that's a signal and
perhaps it is," Shultz said. But he added
that deeds, not rhetoric, will signal
Moscow's desire for improved
"We look for changes in behavior or
indications of a willingness to discuss
them," Shultz said. "We have said we
are willing to do so.
Shultz said there should be a
recognition that the problems between
the two countries "on the whole are
problems that they (the Soviets) have

discuss and try to work things out in a
careful, thoughtful way," he said.
As examples of places where the
Soviets can demonstrate their
willingness to improve relations, Shultz
cited arms control talks now under way
in Geneva, talks in Vienna to reduce
East-West troop strength in Europe and
the human rights conference in Madrid.
Those are negotiations "Where we
would welcome movement," Shultz
A withdrawal of Soviet troops from
Afghanistan would also be "a piece of
constructive behavior," Shultz said in
answer to a question. He did not men-
tion Soviet behavior in Poland.
In the past, administration officials
have insisted on an easing of Soviet
pressure in both Afghanistan and
Poland as conditions for improved
relations with the United States. The
fact Shultz didn't repeat those con-
ditions didn't in itself signify a change,
Shultz said the friendly gestures by
the new Soviet leaders were offset in his
mind by a "quite startling" show of
military strength in a parade in Red
Square following the Brezhnev funeral.
He said Americans should "not allow
the mood music to delude us, to take us
away from our own convictions. We
must do what.is necessary for our own
There has not been any discussion of
a Reagan-Andropov summit meeting,
Shultz said, but added the president
stands ready to meet with the Soviet
leadership if such a meeting would
have promise of meaningful results.
That has been Reagan's position from
the outset of his presidency, Shultz said.
In answer to a question, Shultz said
the 68-year-old Andropov appeared to
be very much in charge of the Soviet
government as Brezhnev's successor.
