TOPSHOT-SOVIET UNION-EAST GERMANY-DDR-FRATERNAL KISS

TOPSHOT - Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, 55, (left) embraces Erich Honecker, hardline communist and general secretary of the Communist Party (SED) as members of SED applaud during the 11th SED party's congress, on April 17, 1986 in East Berlin. Gorbachev called for the simultaneous scrapping of the Warsaw-Pact and NATO military alliances, proposed a 'substantial reduction' of conventional forces in Europe 'from Atlantic to the Urals' and said 'confrontation' had to be replaced by 'dialogue'. Honecker ruled East Germany between 1971 and 1989, when he was dismissed as a consequence of the anti-communist revolution. The socialist fraternal kiss or socialist fraternal embrace is a special form of greeting between the statesmen of Communist countries. This act demonstrates the special connection that exists between Socialist states. This kiss consisted of an embrace, combined with a series of three kisses on alternate cheeks. In rare cases, when the two leaders considered themselves exceptionally close, the kisses were given on the mouth rather than on the cheeks.
