Roosevelt and Churchill were in contact with the Russian Prime Minister, Joseph Stalin, and the Chinese GeneralIssimo Chiang Kai-Shek, none of whom were present. Roosevelt explained that these leaders were not part of the discussion because Russia is not at war with Japan and China is not geographically able to be at war with Germany. However, China and Russia are following a similar trajectory and trying to get rid of enemy invaders in their country. They were fully informed of the reflections of Roosevelt and Churchill. There is «a total agreement on the war plans and the undertakings that will be implemented against Germany, Italy and Japan during the 1943 campaign, in order to get the maximum benefit from the clearly favourable turn of events of late 1942.» The French commanders, General Charles de Gaulle, and General Henri Giraud, who opposed the Nazis` seizure of power of their country, also participated. They reached an agreement to hope for «the liberation of France and the triumph of human freedoms,» «all French men fight side by side with all their allies.» The United States and the British pledged to use «all our intelligence and power to ensure that no post-war government is established in France, except in accordance with the freely expressed wishes of the French people.» At the Casablanca conference, the United States and Britain officially united with France`s free allies in an agreement covering any «theatre of war». President Franklin Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill met at the Anfa Hotel in Casablanca, Morocco, during the 10-day conference held January 14-24 to discuss strategies to end the Hitler empire. The general objectives of the conference focused on an agreement between allied powers on strategic and tactical objectives, on the allocation of resources and on broader diplomatic policy issues related to the continuation of the war that is watching the axis powers in Europe. The most provocative statement of the goal was the agreement to continue the «unconditional capitulation» of the Axis powers.
