    Background: THERE WAS AN AMUSING CLASH OF IDEAS AND POLITICAL PRINCIPLES WHEN EAST MET WEST IN COMMUNIST CONTROLLED BERLIN RECENTLY. HO-CHI-MINH, PRESIDENT OF NORTH VIETNAM, WAS VISITING THE EAST SECTION OF THE FORMER BERLIN CAPITAL AS PART OF HIS SHORT VISIT TO EUROPE. ARRIVING AT THE SCHONEFELD AIRPORT IN A RUSSIAN-BUILT AIRLINER, HE WAS GREETED BY THE EAST GERMAN PRIME MINISTER, MR. GROTEWOHL. AFTER THE NOW FAMILIAR SERIES OF WARM EMBRACES, HANDSHAKES, BOUQUET PRESENTATIONS, AND ENTHUSIASTIC APPLAUSE OF "WORKERS DELEGATIONS", THE VIETNAM LEADER DROVE AWAY TO INSPECT THE RED SECTION OF THE CITY. THE VIETNAM PRESIDENT, WHO HAS BEEN REPRESENTING HIS COUNTRY AT THE POLISH NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATIONS, HAS STATED THAT HE IS FIGHTING IN VIETNAM FOR FREE ELECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE OF THE FORMER INDO CHINA. TWO DAYS AFTER HO-CHI-MINH HAD VISITED EAST BERLIN, PREMIER GROTEWOHL DECLARED THAT FREE ELECTIONS ARE NOT THE WAY TO SECURE REUNIFICATION IN GERMANY.
