(28 Nov. – 1 Dec. 1943)

An inter‐Allied conference between Churchill, Roosevelt, and, for the first time, Stalin, in the Iranian capital of Tehran. Stalin's demand for a second front in France in the summer of 1944 was coordinated with plans for a Soviet summer offensive in 1944. The three leaders discussed the establishment of the UN after the war, and Stalin pressed for a future Soviet sphere of influence in the Baltic States and Eastern Europe. Finally, Stalin indicated Soviet willingness to join the war against Japan once Germany had been defeated.Cairo Conference; Yalta Conference; Potsdam Conference
