Negotiating toward Geneva

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the Indochina phase of the Geneva Conference. The Geneva conferees had a number of agendas. The Soviets undoubtedly hoped to enhance international communist prestige through their support of China, Vietnam, and peaceful coexistence and create some discord among the Western allies at the same time. China, on the other hand, planned to make the most of its first international conference, and Vietminh simply wanted a cease-fire.

Keywords: Indochina phase; Geneva conference; Soviets; communist prestige; China; Vietminh; Geneva conferees
