This study is purposed to elaborate the problem of energy and momentum distribution of the Bell-Szekeres space time in general theory of relativity. In this connection, we use the energy-momentum definition of Moller and obtain that the energy momentum distributions (due to matter plus field) are vanishing everywhere. This results are exactly the same as viewpoint of Aygun et al. and agree with a previous work of Rosen, Salti et al. and Johri et al. who investigated the problem of the energy in Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe. The result that the total energy-momentum of the universe in these models are zero support the viewpoint of Tryon.
