Information

Currently the Ministry for National Defense [of the GDR] is preparing for the visit of a delegation from Division Chemical Services of the Ministry for National Defense to the Republic of Iraq from 29 September to 14 October 1985.

The task of the delegation consists in a review of conditions at the training site for the Chemical Services. It was built by the engineering-technical foreign trade of the GDR, but due to the war with Iran it so far has not been transferred yet.

Furthermore it is planned to prepare an agreement between the Ministry for National Defense of the Defense Ministry of the Republic of Iraq to provide for a three-month-stay by an expert delegation of the [GDR] National People's Army to introduce and train Iraqi personnel. This is supposed to be concluded in 1986.

Members of the delegation are:

  • Major General Nagler, Karl-Heinz

Deputy Chief of the Division Chemical Services

  • Colonel Schönrock, Dieter

Division Chemical Services

  • Colonel Hackbarth, Aribert

Division Chemical Services

  • Major Kuchenbuch, Roland

Interpreter

There are no objections from a political-operative viewpoint [by the Ministry of State Security] against the planned deployment of the listed members from the National People's Army.
