  • Description

    The Shah of Iran arrived in Moscow on Monday (18 November) for talks with Soviet leaders on the relationships between the two countries, energy problems, and economic co-operation.

    Soviet President Podgorni, Prime Minister Alexei Kosygin and Foreign Minister Andrei Cromyko were at the airport to receive the Shah who last visited Moscow in 1972.

    That visit was returned by Mr Kosygin in March last year. The two countries try to maintain an annual exchange of visits to expand co-operation, in particular, economic co-operation.

    Reports said one item certain to figure prominently in the talks was the price of natural gas. Iran sells the Soviet Union 10,000 million cubic metres of natural gas a year through pipelines running across the border into Soviet Azerbaijan. When related oil prices rose in 1973 the authorities in Teheran began pressing for higher gas prices, and the Russians were reported to be unhappy about the increase.

    Late reports from the Soviet news agency Tass, said the two countries have agreed on guidelines for enlarged economic co-operation, after the talks.

    However, problems on key issues in relations between the two countries and on international questions remained unsolved, according to a statement issued after the Shah left for home on Wednesday (20 November).
