The Secretary of State to the Minister in Iran ( Dreyfus )

93. Department’s 65, February 4. By telegram no. 146, February 10, Kuibyshev transmits text of Soviet aide-mémoire dated February 6 regarding American operation of southern transport routes in Iran, from which it appears that British Minister Tehran has undertaken to provide Russian Ambassador with full information about Anglo-American arrangement in this connection. If this is the case, Department will take no further action at present and you should leave your British colleague to straighten out matter with Soviet Ambassador.
