The question of whether or not two appropriate systems interpret arithmetic
in the same way has NOTHING to do with the question of whether one of the
systems is interpretable in the other.

E.g., a lot of (weak) set theories are interpretable in a lot of arithmetics
(systems of arithmetic), and vice versa.
