NotesNews: President Carter's State of the Union address stated that preventing nuclear war
was the foremost responsibility of the two super powers and the efforts to control nuclear
weapons would not be abandoned. He denounced the Russian invasion of Afghanistan as a
radical and aggressive new step. "The implication of the invasion could pose the most
serious threat to world peace since the Second World War". [The Times 24/1/80]
