The article presents the reason of U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt's wife behind her invitation to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to come to the U.S. and have a cup of tea. She claims that the invitation was just plain politeness. She says it was only designed because Khrushchev did not have allegedly the time to have a cup of tea during his previous visit to the country. Further, Khrushchev was allegedly too busy boasting of Russia's steel output that time.
