Former dissidents Lech Walesa, left, and Vaclav Havel, separated by moderator, meet at Karkonosze Pass, Poland, on Saturday. Havel, the Czech president, joined the Solidarity leader for six hours of talks. They said they had similar views on many issues, including worries about a united Germany and the right of the Baltic republics to secede from the Soviet Union. The meeting took place in the area where Havel and Polish dissidents secretly met for years under previous Communist governments.
