Andrei Gromyko, 79, dour Soviet diplomat who, as Foreign Minister from 1957 to 1985, was the public face of Russian inscrutability and intransigence.
From 1943, when Stalin appointed him (at age 34) Ambassador to Washington, Gromyko was an indispensable formulator of Kremlin policy toward the U.S., dealing with nine Presidents.
He helped Stalin haggle with F.D.R. at Yalta, told John F. Kennedy there were no Soviet missiles in Cuba in 1962, and during the Brezhnev era became an architect of detente.

A four-member team of Russia's leading intellectuals led by Gromyko, son of the former premier of the erstwhile Soviet Union, who planned to present a memorandum of peace to Iraqi authorities yesterday warned that the U.S. invasion of Iraq was a move to dominate the world.
While quoting extensively from the UN charter, which his father Andrei Gromyko helped put together that bans the threat of force as an instrument of coercion, he warned that any war on Iraq would create anarchy.
Gromyko, who spoke to students at Baghdad University's Political Science faculty yesterday, told his audience that his peace memorandum did not seek just to defend Iraq, but to defend other countries that could face a similar flouting of international law.

Gromyko junior told Mr Yakovlev that his father was tired of working at the foreign ministry and was ready to "play an initiating role at the forthcoming Politburo meeting" if, in exchange, he was given a sinecure position as chairman of the presidium of the Supreme Soviet.
According to party custom, Gromyko spoke not in his own name, but said straight away that the profile of Mr Gorbachev he was presenting was a collective opinion.

Nothing at all fazed Gromyko, not the betrayal of agreements on Poland, not Katyn forest, not the murder of Masaryk during the take-over of Czechoslovakia, not Hungary or the lurch toward nuclear war over Cuba.
In recommending Gorbachev as Party leader in 1985, Gromyko used an interesting metaphor: "Comrades, this man has a nice smile, but he has iron teeth." Gorbachev proved it shortly thereafter by stripping Gromyko of office and power and putting one of his own men in his place.

 AII POW-MIA - Sino-Soviet Relations
When Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko flew secretly to Beijing shortly after the crisis began, he found that Mao was still expressing hope of “responding with force against force.”47 After hearing back from Gromyko, Khrushchev followed up on his earlier pledge to support the Chinese operation.
Gromyko was aware that the other senior members of the Soviet “party-government delegation,” led by Mikhail Suslov, were scheduled to depart for China on September 26-27, while Khrushchev and Gromyko were still in the United States.
The status of the Foreign Ministry on this issue was never quite as prominent during Andrei Gromyko’s long tenure as foreign minister (1957-1985), but the MFA’s influence did temporarily expand in 1959 on the eve of the Sino-Soviet split.

A similar appraisal of Stalin's demeanor was offered by Andrei Gromyko, who claimed in his memoirs that when Stalin hosted a special dinner for Mao in February 1950, the atmosphere was "oppressive" and the two leaders "seemed personally to have nothing in common that would enable them to establish the necessary rapport."
 When Gromyko first asked Zimyanin to prepare a briefing report on China, the foreign minister knew that he would soon be accompanying Khrushchev on a two-week visit to the United States, a task that would enable him to bolster the Foreign Ministry's standing (as well as his own influence) on other issues, especially Sino-Soviet relations.
 (Gromyko, of course, also intended to make good use of his privileged access to Khrushchev during the visit to, and flight back from, the United States.
