Yalta Conference

The Yalta Conference was an Allied leaders summit held in the port city of Yalta, in the Crimean peninsula, Ukraine, from February 4 to February 11, 1945, during World War II. There, US President Franklin D Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Soviet Primier Joself Stalin agreed on the following points: demanding the Third Reich unconditional surrender; Germany would have to be demilitarized and the Nazi Party dissolved and forbidden;  France would have a fourth occupation zone in the conquered country as plans were drew up to divide Germany into four zones of occupations; Germany would have to do war reparations for damage done to Allied countries, including forced labor in the Soviet Union. It was also agreed on Poland being politically organized on a democratic basis. Furthermore, Nazi leaders would be tried for war crimes and the Soviet Union committed to declare war on Japan, opening a far-east front against the Imperial Japanese Army, and to take part in the future United Nations.
