Washington — US, Soviets to meet today in hotline talks
US and Soviet negotiators are scheduled to meet today to discuss final details of a new hotline communications deal between Moscow and Washington. The meeting is the fourth and probably final one in a series of talks aimed at upgrading the present slow-speed Teletype with a modern communications sytem linked by satellite.
Meanwhile, the US has submitted to the Soviet Union a draft for a new cultural, scientific, and educational agreement between the countries, a US Embassy spokesman in Moscow said Friday.
The last such US-Soviet cultural pact, which allowed greater exchanges of artists, students, and scientists, expired in 1980.
