Reached In
Oil Dispute
Dulles Applauds
Britain-Iran Pact
TEHRAN, Iran UPS-The bitter
British-Iranian oil dispute was set-
tled Thursday, more than three
years afte' Mohammed Mossadegh
-nationalized the Iranian oil indus-
try. Oil was expected to flow again
to Western markets from this little
nation "bordering Soviet Russia
within two to four months.
U.S. Secretary of State, Dulles
declared "every member of the
community of free nations stands
to gain" from the settlement be-
tween eight big Western oil com-
panies and the Iranian government.
"Western diplomats predicted the
Iranian accord-together with the
recent British-Egyptian agreement
on the Suez Canal zone - will pave
the way for a new Middle Eastern
defense network.
25 Year AgreeMent
Representatives of the Anglo-
Iranian Oil Co., which had lost
installations built up over a half
century under the nationalization
program, five American companies
and Dutch and French firms
reached a 25-year agreement with
Iran for operation of the industry,
which has turned out only a trickle
of oil since Mossadegh took over
the fields in 1951.
The AIOC, controlled by the
Britsh government, agreed to ac-
cept 70 million dollars and a 40
per cent interest in the new oil
combine for its vast properties,
once valued unofficially at more
than a billion dollars.
Western oilmen and Finance Min-
ister Ali Amini signed the com-
pensation agreement in Tehran. It
provides for payments beginning
Jan. 1, 1957, running 10 years with-
out interest. The company origin-
ally demanded a half billion dol-
lars compensation.
The announcement of the over.
all settlement came in a joint
statement here by Amini and
Howard Page of Standard Oil of
New Jersey, chairman of the nego-
tiators for the companies. The
statement said the eight firms will
operate the vast Abadan refinery
and surrounding oil fields, buying
the oil output from Iran and selling
the production abroad.
Retains Title
Iran will retain title to the fields
and the refining facilities. The
statement did not cite the rate
of payment to Iran, but informed
sources said it was virtually the
same 50-50 split that prevails else-
where in the Middle East.
Amini and Page estimated that
Iran, through direct oil revenue
and taxes, would get 420 million
dollars in the first three years of
the arrangement. The estimate for
the third year, more than 187 mil-
lion, is larger than Iran's pre-
nationalization oil revenue.
The 25-year pact carries a provi-
sion for three 5-year extensions.

Estes Kefauver took an early lead

note protesting against a death-1
dealing attack on a British air-
liner off Hainan July 23, it wast
officially disclosed Thursday night.
For the, second time, the Chinese
Communists refusedseven to con-
sider such a protest.
TheUnited States had demanded
compensation for three Americanst
killed and three injured and had
called for "appropriate punish-
ment" of those responsible. It has
also denounced the attack on twot
American rescue planes which ledt
to the destruction of two Chineset
fighter planes three days after the1
airliner fell.
"Categorically Rejected"

"It is known that the British air-
liner accident is being solved
through diplomatic channels be-
tween the Chinese and British gov-
enments and has nothing to do
with the U.S. government."
Britain Received Apology
Red China apologized officially
to Britain soon after the Hainan in-,
cident, which she said was an
unfortunate accident. The Chinese1
offered to consider British claims
for compensation.
U.S. Secretary of State Dulles1
said last week the Chinese were1
wrong to .refuse the American pro-
tests. It was accepted in interna-
tional law, he added, that govern-
ments have the right to claim com-
pensation on behalf of their citi-
zens involved in such disasters.
The American note called on
jPeiping to "declare the measures
that will be taken" to prevent a
recurrence of what it described
as a criminal attack.
Britain sent a similar protest to
the Chinese Communists and still,
is awaiting an answer.
