Bush links united NATO to success in arms talks

Vice-President George Bush Wednesday called on America's NATO allies to display unwavering unity on disarmament strategy in the face of a ''chilling Soviet nuclear threat.''

On his arrival here for talks with NATO and Common Market leaders, Mr. Bush warned that any weakening of Western unity on disarmament would affect the Soviet stance at the Geneva arms talks.

Earlier Wednesday, in The Hague, Mr. Bush said the United States will give serious consideration to any serious Soviet proposal for dealing with medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe, even if this does not include a total ban on the weapons. He added that the US will go on pressing for a complete ban, the so-called ''zero option,'' despite its rejection by Moscow.
