dated September 21, 1955: Soviet ideology

During a reception at the Kremlin in honour of the visiting East German leaders, Premier Otto Grotewohl and Vice-Premier Walter Ulbricht, the Soviet Communist Party First Secretary, Mr. Nikita Khrushchev, declared that if anyone thought the "smiles" of the Soviet leaders since the Big Four conference in Geneva would lead to the abandonment of Marx, Engels and Lenin "he is cruelly mistaken." Quoting a Russian proverb — Those who are waiting for that are waiting for a crayfish to learn to whistle— he said, "We are honest men and we always tell the truth to our friends and adversaries. We are for co-existence, but also for the building of Communism. We are for co-existence only because there exist two systems: Capitalism and Socialism."
