Friday 8 June 1990
In Moscow, Margaret Thatcher meets Mikhail Gorbachev. While Thatcher sticks to Germany's unrestricted NATO membership, Gorbachev will not commit himself. He calls for a wide-ranging reshaping of both alliances; NATO should follow the example of the Warsaw Pact yesterday.
Thatcher repeats her plea for the modernisation of short-range nuclear systems. Gorbachev happily refrains from any comment. All in all, the talks have brought no new insights.
