13th July are designed to eliminate disparities in key categories of combat equipment relevant to surprise attack and offensive action and thereby to contribute towards the achievement of a more stable and secure balance of forces at lower levels. Full implementation
of these proposals will dramatically reduce the capacity to conduct offensive operations.
But a numerical panty in conventional forces in Europe, even at lower levels, will not by
itself guarantee stability and security. Further measures are necessary to ensure that, insofar as is possible, the arms reductions we propose will in fact result in the lasting stability
and security that we seek.2. The additional measures necessary are:
