(Studio) In Moscow, USSR leader Leonid Brezhnev meets with over 100 foreign ambs.; says threats to world peace increase, but so do opportunities to strengthen peace. In DC, scientific officials from both cntries. and USSR ambassador Dobrynin meet with President Carter.
REPORTER: Dan Rather

(DC) Reason given for hasty meeting is earlier signing of agreement to extend cooperation in science and technology, which took place at State Department But with President and Dobrynin there, it becomes one more step in public negotiations between 2 ntns. While USSR makes negative statements and gestures publicly, they quietly pursue cooperation in agreements reached by previous admins.
