I think that you will agree that the Record clearly indicates the substantial nature of the dis- cussions which took place during our joint meeting. It is our intention that the U.S. delegation will be prepared to present a tentative plan for a joint work program for consideration by the Soviet side during the next joint meeting scheduled to be held in .Moscow around the end of November 1974.
