dated July 19, 1955: Big Four summit opens

Britain, France, Russia and the United States began their summit conference at the Palais des Nations at Geneva on July 18. It is the first time in ten years that East and West have met "at the summit" to discuss their differences and to seek means of ending the cold war. President Eisenhower presided over the first meeting attended by Sir Anthony Eden, Britain's Prime Minister, Marshal Nikolai Bulganin, Soviet Prime Minister, and M. Edgar Faure, French Prime Minister. In his opening speech, Mr. Eisenhower said ideological differences did not exclude the possibility of a general agreement. In a few hours or a few days, the Big Four could not expect to find a solution for all world problems, but they could perhaps introduce a new climate which would make possible the future settlement of these questions within the framework of their responsibilities. The problems before them were not in themselves insoluble. If the present conditions changed, he added, he was sure that later the Big Four Foreign Ministers could take over where the Big Four left off and find by themselves, or with others, the solutions of the problems.
