Abstract

Political developments in Iran have renewed attention on a Soviet-Iranian treaty purporting to grant the Soviet Union a discretionary right of military intervention in Iran, should Moscow conclude that certain interests are inenaced. 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.
