President Jimmy Carter's Speech to American Newspaper Publisher's Association
The Reverend Jesse Jackson opens with an invocation. After first commenting on freedom of the press, President Carter gives a talk in support of Strategic Arms Limitation Talks II (SALT II). He cites the efforts of three presidents as precedent for continued negotiation and more treaties. He goes on to address four specific concerns: the reasons for SALT, its relationship to US defense strategy, verifiability of the treaty's terms, and how the treaty relates to US-Soviet relations as a whole.
