(Studio) European Security Conf. in Helsinki, Finland, in 1975, was intended to promote freer flow of ideas between E. and West, among other things. Now mtg. in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, is follow-up conference
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Belgrade, Yugoslavia) It appears conference won't become confrontation between United States and USSR ; Ambassador Arthur Goldberg says he'll present United States human rights policy with restraint, but denies he's been muzzled by White House, in attempt to save Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) negotiations. [GOLDBERG - is authorized to be independent, but isn't appropriate for businesslike conference to become scene of confrontation.] USSR representatives say they're not here to fight, but are prepared should entire Communist bloc be attacked for policies. [Chief Soviet delegate Yuli VORONTSOV - has heard nothing lately re: confrontation; if it comes, they'll know how to proceed.] Many delegates feel progress made by all 35 ntns. here since Helsinki has been only modest; Goldberg says he'll list Americans' shortcomings along with accomplishments over last 2 years and that main criticism United States faces will re: unemployment and civil rights.
