Memo

Support measures for the activity of the Communist Party of Turkey, as well as the Tudeh Party of Iran

Comrade Werner UMBREIT, Department of International Relations under the CK of the SED, requests the MfS:


To select a responsible employee who can take care of some issues (security problems and similar) of the work of the

Communist Party of Turkey, as well as the Tudeh Party of Iran.


Both parties are working illegally and suffering heavy losses, particularly in recent times, from arrests and harsh sentences by the regimes of their countries.


Such problems are particularly notable with the Turkish Communist Party. The Secretary General of the Turkish CP recently held a conversation with our Secretary General, Comrade Erich Honecker, as well as with Secretary of the Central Committee of the SED and Politburo member Comrade Axen, during which both assured the Turkish CP full support.


The Secretary General of the Turkish CP request particular support for the following:


-With consultations on some problems in organizing and implementing covert work
-With inspection and establishment of spaces for the special completion of documents in Leipzig
-With political security investigations of individuals (interpreters and other persons).
