Reagan arms talk blasted, but not rejected, by Tass

The Soviet Union scorned President Reagan's new proposals for cuts in long-range nuclear weapons arsenals as a political move aimed at countering peace movements in the United States and Europe.

In the first commentary from Moscow on Mr. Reagan's speech in Eureka, Ill., the official news agency Tass said it was filled with fabrications and attacks against the Soviet Union, and was ''permeated with an aggressive spirit.''

Tass did not say outright that the Soviet Union rejected the plan for cuts in both US and Soviet missiles.

However, it said the tone of Reagan's address showed there was no constructive spirit behind his remarks, which were no more than a forced concession to public opinion and intended to weaken opposition to the White House at home and abroad.
