MONDAY, SEPT. 15, 1952 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U. S. Officials Despair Of Efforts to End Oil Impasse with Iranians fiy JOHN' M. IJiailTOWEK WASHINGTON W — American officials are almost despairing of efforts to end the Anglo-Iranian oil impasse. Authorities said privately today that Premier Mohammed Mossa, ticgh lias shown no Interest, in the proposal sponsored by President Truman and Prime Minister Cluir- chill Aug. 30 to get negotiations going again. Furthermore these officials who Imii previously been counting; on concessions made to Mossadegh in that proposal, have no now moves in readiness if the situation should fio from bad to worse. Two Iranians who have been closely as.socialed with the Premier politically are due here soon and the oil situation is expected to concern them both. One "of those, .scheduled to arrive early in the week, is Hussein Makki, secretary general of Mossa- degh's Nnlional Front party, who has an Invitation from Vice President Robert Li. Garner of the World Bank to take n look at the American oil industry. Mnkki has been in Germany (or a month and is expected to remain In-the United States about six weeks. He 1 lias been prominently Identified with Ihe Iranian oil nationalization program under which the British-controlled Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. was thrown out of Iran a -year ago. |\ - The other Iranian official due shore is (.he new ambassador, Al- lahyar Salth, who Is described as being .a political follower of • Mos- sadegh and as a man having the Premier's confidence. What has apparently stumped American officials who have been trying to get the British and'Iran- ians together and who have emphasized fears of a Communist takeover in Iran, is that two weeks ago in the Truman-Churchill qffer they thought they had the \vnole situation wrapped up for settlement. In months-long talks with American and British officials, Mossadegh had Indicated what seemed to be his major demands. The Truman - Churchill proposal was designed to meet those demands, according to both British and American officials. In substance it offered legal rec- ognition of nationalization, dropped British insistence on suppjy technicians to run the oil industry, and provided means for Iranian oil to begin moving soon again to world markets. In addition H offered 10 million American dollars to ease Mossadegh's financial plight. The Premier immediately rejected this offer and summoned Parliament to formalize his statement. The only reason that the attitude here is not one of complete despair is that 'Mossadegh has stalled off the opening of Parliament, originally set for last Wednesday, and has otherwise Indicated that he wanted to keep the door to negotiation open. However, the expectation here now is that his rejection will tie confirmed.
