Romania asks US/Soviets to halt missile deployment

''The escalation of the nuclear arms race has no justification,'' said Ceausescu.

Romania's Communist Party Central Committee last week called on the two superpowers to abandon the latest missile deployments, saying that both sides were pushing the world over the nuclear precipice.
