Chapter Summary

It was evident that the whole political situation in North-West Persia was being profoundly affected by events in the new Transcaucasian republics and the policies of their governments. There were also several questions of an administrative nature requiring urgent attention, among them the threat of Georgia and Azarbayjan, where there was a serious shortage of food, to expel all aliens not employed on productive labour. The Persian Government was prepared to admit its own subjects, but not foreigners; in any case the measures, sanitary and other, required to deal with a flood of refugees would be a heavy and costly burden. It would also be of direct concern to Norperforce. Towards the end of November (1919), Vusuq ad-Dawla appointed a special Mission to visit the republics, report on the situation, and prepare the way for the establishment of diplomatic relations.
