This chapter is divided into four parts. The first presents the study's overall conclusions on the stability implications of superpower ASW developments. These conclusions provide an appropriate backdrop for two sets of remarks which are pertinent to the subject. The first set addresses the prospects of negotiated arms control specifically aimed at enhancing strategic stability; the second offers a few general thoughts on the survivability of British and French SSBNs. Finally there are two statements, one from a US and the other from a Soviet official, which seem particularly apt as closing observations.
