Soviets reject West's call for embarking on talks

The Kremlin Monday rejected a call by the Western economic summit for dialogue with the Soviet Union. Leonid Zamyatin, head of the Communist Party's international information department, spoke at a press conference before the first summit of the Comecon East-bloc economic group in 14 years.

Mr. Zamyatin said Moscow had studied calls by President Reagan in the Irish parliament a week ago as well as the weekend declaration on East-West relations at the London summit.

''There is nothing new in this (London) declaration,'' he said. ''They talk about negotiations without preconditions, but the conditions are already there in the form of missiles already stationed.''
