From a conversation with a delegation of the CP of Malaya
January 20, 1965
Our party has a high regard for your party because it is a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist party. Its internationalist solidarity has been a great assistance to us, especially since the Moscow Meeting in 1960. The Communist party of Malaya has fought and is fighting under difficult conditions against Japanese and British imperialism, and Malayan reaction as well as against modern revisionism. We have made, are making and have to make still great efforts against these enemies. But Marxism-Leninism, which guides our parties will defeat the enemies and with struggle and effort we shall overcome all the difficulties.
The modern revisionists have created very serious difficulties in the international Communist movement, and in the development of events in the world, in general, because modern revisionism developed in the USSR, one of the main powers of the socialist camp, as well as in the Communist and workers parties of Europe, with the exception of the Party of Labour of Albania. Besides this, modern revisionism has captured the leading positions in the parties and the socialist states of Europe, apart from Albania. In these countries modern revisionism has state power in its hands.
Within a period of ten years, modern revisionism has managed, to some degree, to orientate the policy of these states towards dependence on US imperialism, to wage a savage anti-Marxist campaign against the Communist Party and the People's Republic of China, against the People's Republic and the Party of Labour of Albania, and against all other Marxist-Leninist parties. The revisionists waged this struggle, but of course, they did not achieve the success they had hoped for. On the contrary, during this short period they have been under serious attacks from the Communist party of China headed by comrade Mao Tse-tung, from our parties, and all the revolutionaries of the world. Now, in the opinion of our party, we can say that Krushchevite and Titoite modern revisionism has been exposed, but have not yet lost their power and influence.
Nevertheless, in general, modern revisionism has been exposed, and in the international Communist movement, it is facing a difficult situation. Now, modern revisionism is on the decline. Splits have a developed in the ranks of the modern revisionists; that unity of opinion, that existed at first when they launched launched the open struggle against Marxism-Leninism, exists no longer.
The modern revisionists did not and could not have a sound political basis, either internally or internationally, because the principles on which they have the developed and continue to develop their policy are anti-Marxist. The policy which they follow was and is a capitulationist one, accompanied with great demagogy. N. Khrushchev has exerted great influence through his demagogy in order to give the impression that the Soviet Union and the socialist camp had attained such a level of development and colossal strength, that it was possible to cope with the hostile activity of the imperialists through words alone. The purpose of this demagogy was to cover up the betrayal and hostile activity of Khrushchev and Co. But they made their calculations and worked out their plans without taking into account the counter-attack of the Marxist Leninists. Therefore, when the counter-attack by the Communist party of China, our Party, and the other
Marxist-Leninist parties began, this whole revisionists-built "castle", foundered on their demagogy and the holy alliance on all matters with imperialism, was shaken.
It is a fact that Khrushchev's downfall is a result of the struggle waged by the Marxist-Leninists. This has put modern revisionism in a difficult situation and obliges it to try to find a way out. One of the current methods of the fight of the revisionists against us is to try to stop the polemics and struggle. Thus, what they want is that the Marxist Leninists should no longer attack the treacherous views and stands of the modern revisionists. Their desire and aim is to stop the polemics, because they have seen that the struggle of our parties is soundly based, has exposed them badly, has not ceased, and has not left them free to act and realize their plans. Wherever they have acted they have exposed their real features as anti-Marxists and counter-revolutionaries in the eyes of the Communists and the people's of the whole world. Therefore, all their efforts now are aimed at making us cease the polemics.
