B.B.C. announced that Reader Bullard asked Iran to accept formation of a Tripartite Commission among U.K., U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. in order to discuss Iran's affairs, specially trouble in Azerbaijan where a separatist group declared independence. The reason behind formation of such a commission was to restrain Iran from pursuing a complaint filed with the United Nations after the Allied Powers did not show willingness to pull out their troops from Iran after the war; as promised in Tehran Conference.
Taghizadeh, Iran's ambassador to London announced that Iran was temporarily refraining from registration of this complaint, waiting for the parliament's decision on the Tripartite Commission offer. While the Soviets wanted to direct bilateral talks with Iran, Iranians preferred such discussions to take place under supervision of the United Nations. Iran actually lacked winning cards against her powerful Bolshevik neighbor and knew about their sinister agenda.
During a session held on Jan, 9, Majlis rejected the British offer of formation of the Tripartite Commission and PM Hakimi who presented the draft was harshly criticized and was asked to resign. On Jan, 30 the UNSC passed a resolution asking Iran and U.S.S.R., the two parties of the dispute, to start negotiations as soon as possible and inform the Security Council about the results.
