o. a»t,32 96/4 6 of the 15th Vmj about the Consular post at
KnorrSshafir? I think that instead of oonsidering i horramshahr in
isolation ee had better turn our nindB to the future of all the ooaat
Jpusulates on the Persian shore of the Culf. The old unit; of direc
tion which the cotrioined poet of Bushire eas able to provide has now
been destroyed and ee have the further consideration that
constitutional chanties in India eill inevitably lead to the severance
of the United Kingdom - India partnership in the posts on both sides
oi the Gulf. It is possible, and indeed likely, that this severanoe
may coos about even during, the life-time of tne Interim Government in
India, and ehat ee stmll have to consider is the requiremente of India
in the say ot separate Consular representation,on bote shore*. Nor
could there bo any question of subordination of the Indian Consulates
to the British posts that remain, as is suggested in para.3 of
Donaldson's le tter No.fext.1565/45 oi the 29te Uaroh. Pending the
separation, Tio sever, it uaght be possible for teo oo-ordination of
the Persian coast Consulates, which the Consulate General at Bus hire
has hithsrto provided to be exeroiaed in some way by the Indian
Additional Counsellor in Tehran - thou# frankly I an very doubtful
whether thia will amount to muoh, eavo that he will at least ensure
that the Governmant of India are mads awars promptly of any events
or jpOTsibxlltl^direo tl^a ttraoting their interest, e.g. affairs
2 » ,, , Je shall be grateful for your views on thee#
questions, though I realise that they will necessarily be based
in the main on previous end not present experience.
I am sending e oopy of this latter to Donaldson.
