At the 1986 Reykjavík, both leaders proposed plans to ban all nuclear weapons between the two countries. Gorbachev proposed by the year 2000, Reagan said 10 years. Gorbachev also proposed elimanting all possible forms to launch nuclear weapons such as submarines and missile launchers. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/01/ronald-reagans-disarmament-dream/422244/ The advisors for both leaders were very much aganist the idea. The plan failed because Reagan refused to give up the planned SDI system (Star Wars). Despite it not even being sciencetifically feasible, the Soviets were deathly afraid of it and Reagan would not give it up. In the end, they just agreed to the IRNF treaty that banned land based missiles What if the two leaders approved of a plan to elimnate all nuclear weapons? What it have worked? World other nations agree? (Britain, France, China, Israel) What kind of push back would have occured in the two nations?
