MOSCOW (API President Nixon told the Russian people Tuesday that lie will meet with Leonid Brezhnev again next year to continue the search for lasting peace" and a belter life for them and for the Ameri- can people. The President also acknowl- edged that he and the Soviet Communist party leader "have many difficulties, yet to be overcome in achieving full con- trol over strategic nuclear arms." But he said in a prepared speech they made progress in three annual summit meetings and are "steadily building a new relationship that over time will reduce the causes of con- flict." Positive Stake Nixon gave no hint of any spe- cific results from his talks with Brezhnev in the nuclear field. He briefly mentioned new ac- cords on health and housing and said, "They will give the people (of both of our countries a posi- tive stake in peace." Nixon's speech was en the eve of the windup of his third sum- mit with Brezhnev and followed a new round of talks with htm. Nixon, Brezhnev and key aides met for an hour and 55 minutes.
