    The George H.W. Bush years: Your take

    More from Sergiom

    The 1st Bush Administration and the Former Soviet Union

     

    In 1989 Bush met with the then Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in a conference on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The 1st Bush administration had been put under huge pressure to meet with the Soviets, but not all initially found the Malta summit to be a step in the right direction. But many European leaders encouraged Bush to meet with Gorbachev. The said meeting can now be considered as a conference that did help in ending the Cold War.

     

     

    The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START I) was signed by Bush and Gorbachev in Moscow. Bush described START as "a significant step forward in dispelling half a century of mistrust". After the USSR was dissolved in 1991, President Bush and Gorbachev declared a US-Russian strategic partnership, which marked the end of the Cold War Era.

     

     

    Former Pres. George H.W. Bush negotiated with the Soviet leaders to ensure the end of the Cold War, while he strongly supported the then ongoing democratization processes in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.`
