Stasi offers self-criticism

The GDR security service wants to support the reforms "with all its power". During a meeting of leading party members, which was also attended by the security minister, Wolfgang Herger, the "comrades of the 'Staatssicherheit'" began to discuss their role "with great openness", "critical and self-critical" and to "rethink the consequences for their work arising from the renewal of socialism", reported the news agency ADN.
