Kremlin calls on Carter for revival of 'dialogue'

The Soviet Union called on President Carter Sunday to give up "demagoguery" and start a frank and honest dialogue with Moscow. It was Moscow's first public invitation to dialogue since President Brezhnev wrote off Mr. Carter as an unreliable negotiating partner in January for pushing sanctions against the Soviet Union because of Afghanistan. The call, which came six days before Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie is to meet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko in Vienna, was printed by the Tass news agency.
