  • “When we met,” Reagan would later remind Brezhnev in 1981,“I asked you if you were aware that the hopes and aspirations of millions and millions of people throughout the world were dependent on the decisions that would be reached in your meetings.” This basic idea—the importance of the decisions made by U.S. and Soviet leaders in meeting the hopes and aspirations of the people they represented—was a recurrent theme in Reagan’s personal outreach to Soviet leaders in both handwritten correspondence and personal meetings.
