BRITISH LEGATIOII,
TEHRAN.
20th December, 1939*
My Lord,
I have the honour to refer to Mr. Roberts 1 despatch
No. 378 of the 5th December and to inform Your Lordship that
the Treaty of Friendship between Iran and Japan was ratified
by the Iranian Parliament on the 17th December.
2. In a speech on that occasion Monsieur Nikpur,
a prominent merchant, described the treaty as ,f une sorte
de preamble pour l f elaboration d f un traite commercial”,
which seems to indicate that efforts have not entirely
ceased to overcome the exchange difficulties which wrecked
previous negotiations in this direction.
3. I am sending copies of this despatch to His Majesty’s
Ambassador in Tokyo, and to the Secretary to the Government of
India in the External Affairs Department.
I have etc.,
(Signed) R.W. Bullard.

Content

Papers reporting on various treaties and agreements signed between the Persian [Iranian] Government, and other foreign powers. The agreements and related papers were sent by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to the Under-Secretary of State for India, accompanied by a cover note.

In some instances, copies of correspondence between government representatives are appended to the agreements, as are newspaper cuttings reporting agreements.

The file also includes papers and British Government correspondence relating to a break in diplomatic relations between Iran and France from 28 December 1938 to 19 February 1939, in response to articles about cats ( chats ) appearing in the French press, perceived by the Iranian Government to be an allusion to the Shah.
