[Historical note: this actually happened. The USA did send wheat to the USSR at the height of the cold war to save them from starvation.]


The General Secretary of the Communistic Party and the President of the USA are in a summit meeting. The General Secretary asked the President  to send wheat to save the lives of starving Russians.  The President agreed.
