    Background: THE VICE CHANCELLOR OF WEST GERMANY, DR. ERICH MENDE, TODAY (MONDAY) CALLED FOR WEST GERMAN RECOGNITION OF COMMUNIST STATES OTHER THAN EAST GERMANY. HE WAS ADDRESSING THE OPENING OF A TWO-DAY CONGRESS OF HIS FREE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHICH IS TAKING PLACE IN A ZOO BUILDING IN FRANKFURT.

    THE FREE DEMOCRATS HOLD 66 SEATS IN THE 499-MEMBER BUNDESTAG (LOWER HOUSE) OF WEST GERMANY. THEY ARE AT PRESENT IN COALITION WITH CHANCELLOR ERHARD'S CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS, WHO DO NOT HAVE AN ABSOLUTE MAJORITY. THE PARTY CONGRESS IS LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR ITS CAMPAIGN FOR NEXT SEPTEMBER'S FEDERAL ELECTIONS.

    VICE CHANCELLOR MENDE SAID THE HALLSTEIN DOCTRINE, GOVERNING WEST GERMANY'S RELATIONS WITH COUNTRIES HAVING DIPLOMATIC TIES WITH EAST GERMANY, WAS NO LONGER A SUITABLE INSTRUMENT FOR MAINTAINING BONN'S CLAIM TO BE THE SOLE SPOKESMAN FOR THE WHOLE GERMAN PEOPLE.

    (APART FROM THE SOVIET UNION, WEST GERMANY RECOGNISES NO COUNTRY WHICH HAS DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH EAST GERMANY).
