FROM THE GENERAL CONSUL IN LEIPZIG

According to a request from Comrade Iskenderi I am sending the text of telegram that he requested to be sent immediately to Comrade L.I. Brezhnev in Bukharest.

"To the General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee, dear and deeply respected Comrade Leonid Ilich Breznhev,

Yesterday our Bulgarian Comrades communicated that according to their unilateral decision, after December 1, 1976 we must stop the radio broadcast activity of our party, the People's Party of Iran (which possesses highly important significance for the ideological and organizational work of our Party).

The Central Committee of the People's Party of Iran requests personally of you, dear Leonid Ilich, to do everything possible and find an expedient solution so that our Party's radio continues its activity and to again provide us your brotherly and effective assistance.

With deep gratitude in the name of the Central Committee of the People's Party of Iran, First Secretary

Iraj Iskenderi
