Main Department II
Director


Berlin, August 28th, 1984

To Comrade Minister
Army General Mielke

In implementation of the help and support assured by the Secretary General of the SED Central Committee, Comrade Erich Honecker to the leadership of illegally fighting Communist and Workers’ parties currently staying in the GDR, the attached draft order has been developed with the concurrence of the Director of the ZAIG [Central Evaluation and Information Group], containing relevant assignments for the MfS through various service units to complete.


Although the request for concrete help and support through the MfS, which was conveyed by the International Relations Department of the SED Central Committee, primarily concerns the party leadership of the Turkish CP and the Tudeh Party of Iran, the general problem is one of political operative work, which requires fundamental regulation.
