Failed Summit in Paris
The summit at Paris took place in the shadow of the Russian downing of an American U-2 fighter over the Soviet Union. The Soviets, led by Khrushchev, used the summit as a means of scoring a propoganda victory over the United States. The summit, thus, accomplished nothing but raise the level of rhetoric on both sides.
