352. Despatch From the Embassy in Iran to the Department of State1
- Embassy Despatch 245 of October 30, 19532
- Official Conversation With Dr. Mozafar Baqai
There is enclosed for the Department’s information a memorandum of conversation of another conversation which I had recently with Dr. Mozafar Baqai who has been the leading open critic of the Zahedi Government. While, as in the previous instance, the memorandum of conversation is self-explanatory, my purposes in attending this recent meeting were to learn Dr. Baqai’s current points of view towards the Zahedi Government, the United States, the Iranian resumption of relations with Great Britain, and upon the oil question. Similarly, I wished to express to him clearly the policies and points of view of the United States.
