TEHERAN SITUATION Failure Of Allies To Agree To Persian Demands N.Z. Press Association —Copyright Rec. 1 p.m. LONDON, July 31. Real and growing .tension at Teheran is reported by the Daily Mail correspondent in a dispatch from Cairo. Queer things have been happening which have badly scared the Persians.
There are three reasons, for uneasiness. The first is the British and Russian censorship at Teheran. Britain, though still at war,, does not use it except for purely military matters. The Russians, who are not at war, use censorship rigorously against British and American correspondents on a political basis.
The second reason is that Persia has requested the Allies to withdraw their troops from the territory. Britain, although having vital oil interests in the south, has offered to consider the Persian proposals sympathetically. Russia has not replied at all. Supplies to Russia by way of Iran constitute the third reason. Britain has handed back her section of the railway to the Persians. The Russians are hanging on to their section, although they have no use for it. Clarification is needed of the Red Army's reluctance to quit North Persia. The Persian Army has been prevented from going up to that sealed off area to quell disturbances.
