Opponents of SALT 2 in the US contended that the nature of the limitations left the Soviets with an advantage and blocked ratification in the US Senate.

Later negotiations took place in Geneva that were known as START.

Pressure continued up until the end of the Cold War, but war never broke out again. The race to stockpile weapons finally ended in the early 1990’s.
