JOHN CHANCELLOR ASKED GHOTBZADEN IF HE BELIEVED THE SHAH WAS SICK, THE FOREIGN MINISTER SAID THAT THE SHAH WAS NOT ILL AND NEVER HAD BEEN SICK. ON THE SHAH BEING BROUGHT TO NEW YORK THE FOREIGN MINISTER SAID THAT IT WAS PART OF A PLAN BY KISSINGER AND ROCKEFELLER.. A CONSPIRACY AGAIN US ASKED WHY THE SHAH WAS BROUGHT TO NEW YORK WHEN KISSINGER COULD HAVE EASILY FLOWN TO MEXICO THE FOREIGN MINISTER REPLIED THAT IT WAS SAFER IN NEW YORK. JOHN CHANCELLOR THEN ASKED THE FOREIGN MINISTER IF HE HAD SEEN THE HOSTAGES HE SAID THAT HE HAD NOT SEEN THE HOSTAGES BUT ASSURED THAT THEY WERE IN GOOD CONDITION AND BEING FED WELL, BETTER THAN SOME IRANIANS. WHEN CHANCELLOR ASKED ABOUT THE REPORTS THAT THE HOSTAGES WERE TIED TO THEIR CHAIRS HE ASKED IF THE FOREIGN MINISTER COULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR DISCOMFORT.
