In from the Cold

November 1982
National Review;11/12/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 22, p1391
This article discusses the effects of defection of Soviet diplomat Vladimir Andreyevich Kuzichkin on the world politics. It is reported that Kuzichkin is being debriefed in London, England. And Western intelligence seems certain to gain a great deal of valuable information about the Soviet effort to bring Iran within its sphere of influence, a development that would carry Soviet power to the shores of the Persian Gulf and within easy striking distance of Saudi Arabia. It is further stated that when the administration of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter allowed Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to fall and a hostile government to seize power in Iran, it appeared that it was done in a mood of careless inattention to the strategic importance of that country.
