was received with obvious caution by diplomats in the United Nations although first reactions were gen erally favorable Some suggested he pact actually strengthened and broadened Russias assurances jf troop removals from Iran which the security council Thursday fof mally accepted However the speed with which he agreement followed upon the security councils action evidently caught the experts by surprise The reserve with which they greeted it was explained by some as reflecting a determination to make doubly sure that Russia had not exerted any new pressure on Iran Authoritative interpretations the 3 points of the pact brought out these angles 1 Irans commitment to submit o parliament in 7 months oil con Cessions for Russia undoubtedly means the Russians will get sub stantially what they want in the way of oil rights American offi cials had expected this and ex ressed only the reservation that hey hoped it would be a strictly oramercial arrangement with no political clauses 2 The new selfproclaimed an onomous government of Azerbai an may be on its way out The Russians appear to have agreed that the status of Azerbaijan is a purely internal affair to be worked out in a benevolent spirit toward the people of Azerbaijan 3 The provision for removal of all red army troops from Iranian oil in a month and a half from larch 24 merely formalizes the ssurances already given by Hus ia to the security council and upon which the council acted Thursday when it voted to defer he Iranian case until May 6 It now appears quite likely with ood faith on all
