Cox’s telegram, No. 765 B., to Government of India.
There appear to be signs here that pro-Turldsh movement is losing ground.
Arrival of very influential and important member of clergy from” Kerbala
has resulted in confirmation of rumours, previously received, of Turkish exac
tions, at the expense of Shiah community in Mesopotamia. People are also
beginning to learn extent of Turkish exactions at Tabriz. Movement on
Kermansnah frontier is likely further to check enthusiasm for Turkish-
German cause. It was probably really this, that caused the Ambassador to
telegraph, that Turkish troops should not cross the frontier.
Addressed to Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs; repeated to India and
