On the report from informal collaborator (IC) "Reza" from 26.7.78

The IC shared that there are widespread personal conflicts in the office of the Tudeh Party in Leipzig between Eskandary and Kianouri and their current supporters. In order to now strengthen the leadership of the Tudeh Party Gen. Safari was appointed as its Third Secretary, whose primary focus is work on propaganda. S. had been previously active in Prague, and works here at the magazine "For Peace and Socialism."

The IC considers him a decent and honest comrade, although he will have a difficult time asserting himself under the current circumstances in the office.

The IC further shared that two other Iranians have come from Moscow who will work in the office. The name one is [redacted]. The IC does not know the other by name.

The IC also shared that the Maoist magazine "Tufan" is circulating among Lebanese students. A Lebanese student with the first name of [redacted], for instance, had this magazine. Apparently this magazine ist sent from West Berlin, and he has been tasked by his Party with making a translation, in order to evaluate its content.
