In May 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the historic Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty with USSR President Leonid Brezhnev. This trip to Moscow followed Nixon’s February 1972 trip to China and set the stage for the January 1973 Paris Peace Accords, which ended the Vietnam War. FOXNews National Security Analyst KT McFarland will lead a discussion with former members of Nixon’s National Security Council staff—Phil Odeen, Jan Lodal, David Aaron, and Winston Lord—about their behind-the-scenes efforts and how Nixon’s diplomacy with the USSR included détente and arms control. Presented in partnership with the Richard Nixon Foundation.
