On October 13, 1986, President Ronald Reagan spoke to the American people on his recent summit with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland. During the speech, he discussed how close he and Gorbachev came to signing an agreement eliminating a large number of nuclear weapons and why he refused to give in to the Soviet leader's demands that he limit research on his Strategic Defense Initiative. Despite this stumbling block, Reagan conveyed his optimism that he and Gorbachev were working to create a more peaceful world.
