Trivia Question: What does the diplomatic acronym S.A.L.T. stand for?
Answer: Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty/Talks
The acronym refers to both arms limitation conferences and the resulting treaties. The need for the S.A.L.T. conferences came about because of the expansion of nuclear arsenals around the world. In the midst of the Cold War, both America and the U.S.S.R. agreed to place caps on the amounts of nuclear weapons they could possess in an attempt to deter nuclear war.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
