Alternate Title: NSDD 116: Strategic Defense Initiative: Congressional and Allied Consultation

National Security Decision Directive 116 directs steps to be taken in consulatations with Congress and allied governments regarding the strategic defense initiative. "The studies conducted in response to NSSD 6-83 confirm that an aggressive technology research program aimed at developing and demonstrating the capability for defending the nation against ballistic missile attack is feasible. These studies also confirm that an effective defense against ballistic missile attack could enhance U.S. national security and our ability to deter conflict. I would like to consult with the Congress and U.S. allies before I make a final program decision regarding the strategic defense initiative."
