I MOSCOW (AP) - President Nixon told the Russian people Tuesday that he will meet with Leonid Brezhnev again next year to continue the search for “a lasting peace” and a better life for them and for the American people. The President also acknowledged that he and the Soviet Communist party leader “have many difficulties, yet to be overcome in achieving full control over strategic nuclear ; arms.” But he said in a prepared speech they made progress rn three annual summit meetings and are “steadily building a new relationship that over time will reduce the causes of conflict.” Positive Stake Nixon gave no hint of any specific results from his talks with Brezhnev in the nuclear field. He briefly mentioned new accords on health and housing and said, “They will give the people I of both of our countries a positive stake in peace.” Nixon’s speech was on the eve of the windup of his third summit with Brezhnev and followed a new round of talks with him. Nixon, Brezhnev and key aides met for an hour and 55 minutes. “It was a good day of substantive talks,” said White House spokesman Ronald munity Theater players have 1 In a joint statement, the two sides said the problem of a - Gazette Photo bv John AActvor peaceful settlement in the Middle East was among the topics discussed.
