    January 1986, Gorbachev proposed a program to eliminate all nuclear weapons around the world. To the dismay of US national security officials, Reagan welcomed Gorbachev's proposal(partly in response to a growing campaign for disarmament in the US). On January 17, Shultz told the state department's arms control group to get working "on what a world without nuclear weapons would mean to us". "I know that many of you and others around here oppose the objective of eliminating nuclear weapons, but the president of the United States doesn't agree with you, and he has said so on several very public occasions." G.Shultz said, Furthermore, "it's a political hot button." Mikhail S.
