CLINTON, YELTSIN MAY TALK ON MORE CUTS IN N-WEAPONS

Presidents Clinton and Boris Yeltsin may discuss plans for a new treaty on further cuts in their huge nuclear arsenals at a Moscow summit in May, a Yeltsin aide said Monday.

Presidential spokesman Sergei Medvedev told reporters during the Russian leader's visit to the town of Ryazan that Yeltsin was looking at "options for preparing START-3 and in principle discussing the idea of full nuclear disarmament."

The ideas would be "talked through" during the U.S.-Russian summit on May 11, he said.

Medvedev said Yeltsin told a meeting of local intellectuals his disarmament idea would mean "the elimination of nuclear weapons throughout the whole world."
