December 8, 1987 White House press conference, signing of intermediate range arms control treaty (INF Treaty): MSs RONALD REAGAN, General Secretary MIKHAIL GORBACHEV at his side, talking to the press about the nature of the treaty. "This agreement contains the most stringent verification regime in history, including provisions for inspection teams actually residing in each other's territory and several other forms of onsite inspection, as well." edit "For the first time in history, the language of ``arms control'' was replaced by ``arms reduction'' -- in this case, the complete elimination of an entire class of U.S. and Soviet nuclear missiles." edit "The numbers alone demonstrate the value of this agreement. On the Soviet side, over 1,500 deployed warheads will be removed, and all ground-launched intermediate-range missiles, including the SS - 20's, will be destroyed. On our side, our entire complement of Pershing II and ground-launched cruise missiles, with some 400 deployed warheads, will all be destroyed. Additional backup missiles on both sides will also be destroyed." edit "We can only hope that this historymaking agreement will not be an end in itself but the beginning of a working relationship that will enable us to tackle the other urgent issues before us: strategic offensive nuclear weapons, the balance of conventional forces in Europe, the destructive and tragic regional conflicts that beset so many parts of our globe, and respect for the human and natural rights God has granted to all men." MSs Reagan and Gorbachev signing the treaty, exchanging pens, standing and shaking hands.

May 11, 1988 Excerpt from Remarks at the Annual Republican Congressional Fundraising Dinner. Ronald Reagan recounts the battles undertaken by his administration against Communism, then announces Soviet troop withdrawl from Afghanistan, thus ending the eight year war and introducing another eight of civil war. "We have spoken openly and directly about the fundamental moral differences between the United States and the Soviet Union. We have rejected containment and made our policy the expansion of freedom around the world. We sent a new message of strength by restoring democracy in Grenada. And by supporting courageous freedom fighters around the world, we're shining a light on the path out from communism. And this Sunday, the Soviet Army is scheduled to begin its long-awaited withdrawal from Afghanistan."

Auditorium in Moscow, accoutrements of Soviet Communism adorning the walls: the troop removal from Afghanistan. Reagn, "Just a few years ago, few would have imagined the progress our two nations have made together. The INF treaty, which General Secretary Gorbachev and I signed last December in Washington and whose instruments of ratification we will exchange tomorrow -- the first true nuclear arms reduction treaty in history, calling for the elimination of an entire class of U.S. and Soviet nuclear missiles. And just 16 days ago, we saw the beginning of your withdrawal from Afghanistan, which gives us hope that soon the fighting may end and the healing may begin ..."

June 2, 1988 Excerpt from Remarks Following the Soviet-United States Summit Meeting in Moscow. Press conference ending Moscow Summit Meeting: Reagan thanks the Gorbachevs and the Soviet people, and longs for lasting peace. "And now, if I might just conclude on a personal note, earlier this week at Moscow State University I mentioned to the young people there that they appeared to my eyes exactly as would any group of students in my own country or anywhere else in the world; so, too, did Nancy. And I find the faces, young and old, here on the streets of Moscow. At first, more than anything else, they were curious faces, but as the time went on, the smiles began and then the waves." edit "I think you understand we're not just grateful to both you and Mrs. Gorbachev but want you to know we think of you as friends. And in that spirit, we would ask one further favor of you. Tell the people of the Soviet Union of the deep feelings of friendship felt by us and by the people of our country toward them. Tell them, too, Nancy and I are grateful for their coming out to see us, grateful for their waves and smiles, and tell them we will remember all of our days their faces: the faces of hope -- hope for a new era in human history, an era of peace between our nations and our peoples."
