Glasboro Summit 1967

Nixon and Ford
L-R: Mr. Sukhodrev (Kosygin's interpreter, partially obscured), Mr. William Krimer (Pres. Johnson's interpreter), President Lyndon Baines Johnson, Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin.

President Johnson met with his Soviet counterpart, Aleksi Kosygin, at a summit meeting in Glassboro, New Jersey. The meeting accomplished very little. An attempt was made to move toward an ABM (anti-ballistic missile) treaty, but Kosygin did not seem to have the ability to even discuss the issue. The summit took place on June 23, 1967
