Termination of the U.S.S.R.'s Treaty Right of Intervention in Iran, 74 American Journal of International Law 144 (1980)

Iran had long chafed under the treaty. On November 5, 1979, authorities in Iran announced the abrogation of the two articles in the treaty providing for Soviet intervention. To date, the USSR has not indicated its response.
