ICourier News Photo) Iran Cuts Diplomatic Relations with Britain By MARC PUIIDUE . TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran broke off diplomatic relations with Britain today. It was a grave development in the bitter, 18-months-long dispute over nationalization of the t'i million dollar holdings in Iran of Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. and seemed to rule out any chance no w for a settlement, t . . Premier Mohammed Mossadegh, » ; the frail but stubborn advocate of nntinnnli-jfilirn. ' ™°n"'j".. 11. _ 'X'-i' nationalization, 'made 'the "'announcement in a nationwide broadcast. He had Intended the message for the Majlis — lower house of Parliament - but it did not convene, because it lacked a quorum. By breaking- off relations he made good a threat voiced several weeks ago. It was also his reply to n British foreign office statement yesterday which lashed out personally at Mossadegh, saying he had overstepped the limits of international courtesy in his attacks upon Britain. Little Surprise Mossadegh fired back today with a charge that the British "by a continuation of useless correspondence" intend to merely waste time and "prevent us from taking another economic palh which would bring salvation and freedom to the Iranian people." Last January, Iran, closed Britain's nine consulates in the country. (Mossadegh's action today evoked liltle surprise at the Brillsh foreign office. There was no official comment but informants said the statement yesterday and the rejection of Mossadegh's lalest offer in the Anglo-Iranian negotiations had virtually dared him to make the diplomatic-break. (In Washington U. S. officials said Mossadegh's decision "knocked sky high" efforts to find a solution to the oil dispute. They described the decision as "most unfortunate.") 7 a m be- for this Joiner to Sell Bonds Monday JOINER—A S20.000 bond issue is scheduled to be sold by the City of Joiner at 10 a.m. Monday to finance extension of the water system here.
