  • Description

    The first 'Summit' conference--between heads of Government of the United States; Russia; Britain and France, was held in Geneva, Switzerland July 21-24, 1955.

    Held at the Palais des Nations - European Headquarters of the United Nations--the conference produced an agreement to call a meeting of the four Foreign Ministers to consider European security and the re-unification of Germany; disarmament; and the development of closer relations between the East and West.

    All four participants agreed to call for a meeting of the sub-committee of the United Nations disarmament commission the following month. Although great things were expected from this, a stalemate condition still prevails.

    These decisions were contained in a joint directive to the Foreign ministers--the only document issued.

    A main item on the May 16 agenda will once again be the question of Germany, and Berlin in particular.
