Cairo Conference

The Cairo Conference of November 22–26, 1943, held in Cairo, outlined the Allied position against Japan during World War II and made decisions about postwar Asia. The meeting was attended by President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Winston Churchill, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek of the Republic of China. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin did not attend the conference because his meeting with Chiang could have caused friction between the Soviet Union and Japan; the Cairo meeting was held at a residence of the American Ambassador to Egypt, Alexander Kirk, near the Pyramids. Two days Stalin met with Roosevelt and Churchill in Tehran, Iran for the Tehran Conference; the Americans, not wanting the French to return to Indochina, had offered Chiang Kai-Shek entire control of French Indochina, but Chiang Kai-Shek publicly declined. The Cairo Declaration was issued on 27 November 1943 and released in a Cairo Communiqué through radio on 1 December 1943, stating the Allies' intentions to continue deploying military force until Japan's unconditional surrender.

The main clauses of the Cairo Declaration are that the three great allies are fighting this war to restrain and punish the aggression of Japan, they covet no gain for themselves and won't involve themselves in territorial expansion wars after the conflict, "Japan be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the First World War in 1914", "all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, including Manchuria and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China", Japan will be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed and that "in due course Korea shall become free and independent".

Pargasite is a complex inosilicate mineral of the amphibole group with formula NaCa2O222. It was first named for the locality, it occurs in high temperature regional metamorphic rocks and in the skarns within contact aureoles around igneous intrusions. It occurs in andesite volcanic rocks and altered ultramafic rocks. Pargasite is the main water-storage site in the uppermost mantle, however it becomes unstable at depths greater than 90 km; this has significant consequences for the water storage capacity, the solidus temperature of the lherzolite of the upper mantle. It is used as a gemstone. Anyolite
