(Studio) Paul Warnke is sworn in as chief disarmament negotiator and as head of Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, with President Carter in attendance.
REPORTER: Barbara Walters
(DC) President Carter had said last week Senator opponents to Warnke also opposed substantial arms reduction; now says both they and USSR want reductions. [CARTER - says Senators, along with self, Warnke, Secretary of State Vance and Vice President Mondale, do want reductions, and there have been encouraging signs.] When Vance and Warnke go to Moscow at end of month they'll meet with USSR leaders who have already rejected some of Carter's proposals, such as leaving backfire bomber and cruise missile out of talks, and who are upset with regard to Carter's stand on human rights, though Carter says he sees no connection between arms talks and human rights issue.
