In September 1959 Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschev made an extended visit to the USA.

While visiting Los Angeles, Khrushchev was infuriated when barred from visiting Disneyland because of security concerns.

Khruschev and President Eisenhower met at Camp David in Maryland for talks about the Cold War.

After two days of meetings, a joint communique suggested that both agreed that the discussions had been useful in clarifying each other’s position on a number of subjects. They also agreed that general disarmament was the most important issue facing the world.

Although no specific agreements were made, Eisenhower and Khrushchev agreed to hold another summit in the near future and Eisenhower announced he would visit the Soviet Union during the next year.
