Tehran Conference, 1943

   The first wartime meeting of leaders of the “big three”—the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union—took place in Tehran, Iran, from 28 November to 1 December 1943. While the two Western leaders, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, confirmed to Joseph Stalin that a second front would open with an invasion of Europe in May 1944, Churchill and Stalin made agreements about divisions of influence in Eastern Europe. While they agreed that power would be shared equally in Yugoslavia and Hungary, Churchill conceded total control of Rumania and Bulgaria to the Soviet Union. Stalin also indicated that he would join the war against Japan when the war in Europe ended.
