This is the press conference where the words “unconditional surrender” were first released to the press to describe the Allied demands for the Axis. Roosevelt and Churchill had discussed the concept during the conference but had not fully agreed that this would be the guiding principle for their prosecution of the war until Roosevelt blurted it out to these reporters. Churchill was mildly surprised by the remark but the two quickly came to an understanding and agreement on the subject.
