  • Description

    Soviet Premier Khrushchev returned to Djakarta from the island of Bali, famous tourist paradise, for an address to the Indonesian Parliament, Feb. 26.

    Speaker Sartono welcomed him, and as he entered the building, M. Ps, guests, and Russian Foreign Minister Gromyko gave him a standing ovation. Many members of the diplomatic corps, including American and Chinese Communist ambassadors, heard an interpreter read a 45-minute speech in Indonesian, after Mr. Khrushchev's opening remarks in Russian.

    It was devoted mainly to international affairs. Mr. Khrushchev looked forward to Afro-Asian participation in future summit meetings; he deplored the new American-Japanese treaty as a threat to world peace, and considered the South East Asia Treaty Organisation guilty of aggressive acts.

    Turning to domestic matters the Russian leader, noted for his love of proverbs, produced an Indonesian one suitable for the occasion. "Everything that has been planted is flourishing and goods are so cheap that everyone can buy them" - that would be the outcome of Russian aid for Indonesia.

    His speech was politely applauded but the Masjumi party, Moslem and suspicious of Russia, remained silent.
