August 1975
Time;8/4/1975, Vol. 106 Issue 5, p10
The article focuses on the summit meeting of U.S. President Gerald R. Ford in Helsinki, Finland in 1975 despite of the failure of his lobbying efforts to convince the Congress to continue embargoing arms shipments to Turkey because of the usage of American weapons by the Turks in their 1974 invasion of Cyprus. It says that Ford goes to the summit for a new round of discussion of diplomacy and business known as summitry. The meeting was attended by 35 nations and touted as the most spectacular since the Congress of Vienna, but the preliminary negotiations have caused no change in the current state of uneasy detente. It mentions the decision of the Senate to repeal the embargo in May 1975 and the move of Turkish government to invalidate the Ankara's bilateral defense treaties with the U.S.
