Held from 26 April to 21 July 1954, the Geneva Conference was significant in providing a major diplomatic platform for the US and China to undertake negotiations and work out differences so as to reach an understanding on outstanding issues regarding the “Korean question” and the “question of restoring peace in Indochina.” The evolution of Sino-US relations during this conference and the implications such developments had on the straits are studied. Moreover, this chapter probes the actions Taiwan, not a participant in Geneva, took during this period and the impact such actions had in the unfolding of events.

Keywords:   Geneva Conference, Vietnam War, Mao Zedong, John Foster Dulles, tacit communication
