Three months after the CIA backed coup on Aug, 19 that toppled the popular Mosaddegh regime, 15 English diplomats and embassy staff enter Tehran to reopen the British embassy which was closed due to the row after Iran's nationalization of oil industry. The junta regime's PM General Zahedi declared starting Iran-British relations as necessary. Meanwhile Mosaddegh's trial continued at the junta court. Ayatollah Kashani declared this day a historical disgrace and called for public mourning. Newspapers were shut down and voices of dissent were silenced by force, adding a new black page to Iran-British history while making the US a new enemy.
