I am pleased to join you to mark the 30th anniversary of the landmark Reagan-Gorbachev Summit.
That meeting here in Reykjavik was in many ways a turning point in global strategic relations.
U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev came to Reykjavik with different visions for stability.
Yet over the course of two days, they came close to an audacious plan for the elimination of all nuclear weapons.
General Secretary Gorbachev called it a “breakthrough, which allowed us for the first time to look over the horizon.”
