Tass: Reagan arms plan veils aim for superiority

The official Soviet news agency, Tass, said Wednesday President Reagan's proposals on strategic arms were empty words masking US intentions to achieve military superiority over Moscow.

Tass said Mr. Reagan's speech had tried to suggest that the US position at the Geneva strategic arms reduction talks had changed for the better. ''However, when it came to the core of the problem it became clear that it was nothing but words, words that have nothing to do with actual deeds,'' Tass said.

On Tuesday, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko proposed a nuclear weapons freeze, terming it a measure to curb the arms race at a time of ''aggravated international tension.'' He proposed an additional item for the agenda of the UN General Assembly on the subject, along with another new item entitled ''Condemnation of Nuclear War.''
