He called upon them to eliminate the wall that separated East and West Berlin. The wall served as a symbol of the separation between the democratic countries and those contolled by the Soviets. The wall did eventually come down as the USSR collapsed during the presidency of George Bush Senior who succeeded President Reagan.
