In June 1961 President John F. Kennedy met Soviet Nikita Khrushchev of the Soviet Union to discuss numerous issues in the relationship between their countries. Discussions included the Berlin crtisis and the neutralization of Laos,

Although the summit was initially seen as a diplomatic triumph by the USA, the two leaders became increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress of the negotiations.

Ultimately, Khrushchev feeling he had outmatched Kennedy, came away believing he had triumphed in the summit over a weak and inexperienced leader.
