Proposals for an integrated nuclear Force that would give West Germany More say in nuclear strategy. Indications from Alosco that Progress could be made on German reunification Access to West Berlin or a Viet Nam peace conference if the integrated nuclear Force idea is dropped. Observers said trading the nuclear integration proposals for soviet concessions on any of the above goals could Lead to an East West agreement to halt the spread of nuclear weapons. Diplomats believe red China s explosion of a nuclear device has made the russians More anxious to achieve a non proliferation agreement with the americans and the British. The main stumbling Block to such an agreement is Moscow s opposition to the u. S. And British proposals for nato nuclear integration. The soviets say the proposals would give West Germany indirect Access to nuclear weapons. The american proposal for a multilateral nuclear Force Calls for a Fleet of surface ships armed with nuclear weapons and manned by mixed Crews from the participating nations. Britain s proposal Calls for an Atlantic nuclear Force integrating nuclear armed units from the nato nations but the units would retain their National identity. The British plan emphasizes air Force units and possibly submarines. Neither proposal seems to have much Chance of being adopted.
