Tatcher And Reagan Visit Tehran

By: Mir M.Hosseini

Ronald Reagan arrived in Tehran two days before Margaret Thatcher. They both met with Mohammad Reza Shah, prime minister Jamshid Amouzegar, and other officials including Houshang Ansari the minister of petroleum. Thatcher became the Conservative party's new leader in 1975. In 1979 she became Britain's first female prime minister. Reagan who used to be a movie actor before entering politics became the 40th President of United States in 1981.Iran's relations with both countries were severed after the 1979 revolution, specially after the Israel embassy was shut down.
The real context of the meeting between these party leaders and Shah is still a mystery. It's known that Shah did not support democrats in the US as well as the labor party of England whose leaders were head of their states at the time.
