During the 1960s, the Americans and Soviets were concerned about the rising cost of the arms race. They tried to negotiate in order to control and streamline their nuclear arsenals in nuclear parity by codifying and regulating the anti-missiles. It was a system of missile defense that had been installed in Moscow around 1967.

The SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Talks) negotiations were opened in November 1969 and ended with the signing of a SALT agreement in May 1972. This agreement established the status of partner and equal opponents of the United States and the USSR.

SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Talks) and START (Strategic Arms Reduction Talks) symbolize the relaxation between the U.S. and the USSR and the implementation by the two super powers of the theories of the Arms Control. The SALT 1 and 2 agreements were signed on 26 May 1972 and June 18, 1979 respectively.

The SALT agreements had been concluded for 5 years and were then extended until the signing of SALT 2.
