troops continued their withdrawal
from Iran by land and sea today
and, with that prime international
problem apparently settled peace
fully, Iran prepared for a cam

also may be settled peacefully,”
an Iranian general staff officer
Premier Ahmed Qavan repeat
edly has contended that Azerbaijan
province, now ruled by a govern

returned to the national fold by
The general staff officer told the
Associated Press he was certain
that the Kurdish republic move
ment and the self-proclaimed
Azerbaijan government were
“closely allied—in fact grain from
the same mill.”
“If the departing Russians do
not leave too many arms and
agents behind, both movements
probably will end May 6”—the
date for Soviet evacuation to be
completed, he said.
The officer declared that the
“great majority” of Azerbaijan
ians were not supporting their
new government, but “ are con
tent to await the time when they
can settle their own problem with
out foreign interference.”
He added, however, that Kurdish
bands were making sporadic raids
against Iranian garrisons south of
Saujbulagh “armed with mortars
and hand grenades that were not
manufactured in Iran.”
At the same time the officer
questioned a Kurdish report that
tribesmen had obtained tanks and
mountain artillery from the de
