"Dry Tinder" in the Middle East

Straight, Michael
January 1956
New Republic;1/30/56, Vol. 134 Issue 5, p9
This article presents information on international relations. The Soviet Government agrees with U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's assessment. When the Axis powers in November, 1940, pressed the Kremlin to accept their friendship by acquiescing in their war aims, Molotov agreed on one condition, "provided that the area south of Batum and Baku in the general direction of the Persian Gulf is recognized as the center of the aspirations of the Soviet Union." The agreement fell through and Soviet advances into the area were frustrated in the immediate postwar years. The Kremlin's interest remains intense in a region of historic Russian concern, and it is now increasing.
