Safeguarded zonal Disarmament

Orear, Jay
February 1963
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Feb1963, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p18
The article focuses on issues concerning East-West disarmament negotiations. Such zonal disarmament negotiations calls for an inspection from both sides. Soviet-style inspection involves observation of weapons as they are destroyed, but with no direct verification of the numbers of retained weapons, while Western-style inspection involves free access and search for possible hidden weapons at an early stage. To meet these requirements from both the East and the West, it is suggested to use an appropriate system of zonal disarmament as opposed to zonal inspection.
