Abstract:

The pace of change in Soviet-American relations since 1985 has been truly breath-taking. In the fall of 1990, two historic meetings of the leaders of the erstwhile Cold War rivals accelerated that already breath-taking pace still further. At a one-day summit meeting in Helsinki, Presidents George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev jointly affirmed their common determination to reverse Iraqs aggression against Kuwait. a few days later, in Moscow, U.S. Secretary of State James Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze joined their German, British and French colleagues in signing a treaty terminating Four Power occupation rights in the two German states, thus removing the last external obstacle to their full unification.
