PAGB TEN BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. Urges Britain To Join Aid to Iran, Prevent 'Red Coup' WASHINGTON (/P) — The United States reportedly has urged Britain to Join In an Augio-Americim emergency aid program lor strategic Irnn to avert a possible Communist coup. Secretary of State Aeheson !s reported to have made this plea in a memorandum to British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden within the past 10 days. Acheson Is said to have stressed the nccrt for quick Joint action to keep Iran's vast oil resources from falling by default into Russian hands. American diplomats who disclosed this to a reporter today Indicated the Hellish are decidedly cool to Acheson's idea, but apparently have not flatly rejected It, Token Grant Readied Acheson told Eden, they said, the United States is prepared to give ,\n Immediate "taken" grant of around five to 10 million dollars to Iran if Britain simultaneously wmilrt: 1. Buy (he two million tons of refined oil and oil products now stored in huge tanks aiong the Persian Gulf. This would bring the Iranian government alrout 35 to -10 million dollars, at present world market r/iioes. 2, Declare Britain's willingness to n'uMc by international arbitration of its long-standing dispute with Iran over nationalization of the I'-i billion dollar Anglo-Jrtmiun OH Co. Under presstire trom Washington, American and British dlplojnnls are urgently exiilorins possible solutions to (he British-Iranian argument. The oil dispute has blocked the flow of petroleum to the West for 14 months and has choked off (.he Iranian government's mnln source of revenue. Undercut Feared Britain's coolness to the American Idea, officials said, stems from a belief that to buy any oil would undercut Britain's legal argument that the oil already belongs to the British. The British Cabinet is scheduled to meet In London today v,-ith Prime Minister Churchill to consider a reply to an invitation from Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh to resume oil negotia- Acheson't suggestion apparently was Intended to guide the llritish in drawing up an answer. American officials bellevo that Mossadegh's regime, nnlionnlist as It Is. represents the West's only hope of averting chaos. Further, they believe an emergency aid program Is essential to stabilize conditions, pay civil servants and lessen the. threat of a Communist-led upheaval. Such an aid program, they reason, would also prove to Mossadegh that Britain and the United States Intend to support hi.s government and may persuade him to make concessions on his side. Behind the American attitude Is 3 [car that Iran's oil would relieve a shortage now immfjcrtnfi the buildup of the Soviet wnr machine. Any Hussion takeover of Iran also would put the nus.sians astride Hie Mld- caslcrn corridor with particular threat to Turkey, Pakistan and India, and would seriously jeopardize Western defense plans.
