AftHonio ExpressNews An AP News Analysis By BARRY SCHWEID AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON AP Compromises on arms control are carrying the United States and the Soviet Union toward a third superpower summit one that would bring General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to Washington on his first visit to But despite the major strides taken by the two sides on at least three important issues are The main one is a dispute over equipping West German mediumrange missiles with nuclear The Soviets want the warheads destroyed along with all other superpower weapons with ranges of 315 miles to The Reagan administration calls the demand mischievous and says any such decision is for the West Ger man government to The other major unresolved issues are the schedule for a missile withdrawal by the two sides and whether American monitors will be allowed to make checks on Soviet installations without much The Soviets willingness to eliminate all intermediaterange missiles eases what had been a primary concern how to make sure a treaty is not being If you are down to zero and you see one you know theres a chief negotiator Kamjpelman in an interview last The proms of compromise began quietly several weeks Jt centered on the 33 triple jowssMe iawxcbers 50 SS12 shorterrange rockets the Soviets proposed to keep in Asia even while all other and Soviet intermeidaterange missiles were destroyed Nikolai a senior adviser to the Soviet General approached negotiator Maynard Glitman in where the two sides have been working on an arms con trol accord since with an informal Chervov the Soviets agreed to remove the remaining Asian Would the United States promise not to convert cruise missiles to be taken out of Western Europe into sealaunched missiles or to modify Pershing II missiles into shorterrange weapons Glitman reported the offer to Washington and was instructed to tell Chervov it sounded like a good He did within g few But despite the positive the negotiations went into a slowdown at the beginn ing of and there they remained until Gor bachev gave an interview last week to an In donesian He said he would destroy all the Asian thereby yielding to the proposal Reagan first made in J98J for a total ban on intermediaterange In the United States had to agree not to store WO warheads in within range of Soviet The 4eaJ was and on Monday Glit roan notified the Soviets tormally in The djecision to go to zerozero meaning there would be no or Soviet missiles in the shorterMd mediunjrange intermediate categories met two American One is Uxat Me missiles would np longer be targeted ou and on two major allies Japan and South Korea The other is that a treaty would be easier to verify in accepting Gorbachevs offer also accepted the concessions sought by the Soviet leader and by Chervov in his informal proposi Since no mediumrange missiles would be naturally the United States would not keep 100 warheads in Alaska more the 332 American missiles to be withdrawn from West Germany Italy and Belgium could not be con verted into other weapons or turned over to the NATO Charles the State Department made this clear in replying to reporters question Tuesday he also stressed that the United States would keep insisting on effective That is the next major task facing and Soviet They are resuming their ef forts to draft procedures acceptable to both In the Soviets long ago agreed to have American monitors on their Soviet monitors would have equal rights to make checks here on whether aew missiles were being The question now is whether the United States could demand quick access to Soviet f aeilities to make sure infractions were not covered And the Reagan administration myst resolve its own disagreement over whether certain U S JnstaUaUons should be
