Comrade Chicherin:

Rothstein is complaining about Baku. What is your decision? Perhaps this should be put through the C.C., to make it binding on Orjonikidze (a member of the C.C.).

Give Molotov the finished draft (text) of the C.C. resolution, we shall get it through by phone.[1]

With communist greetings,


[1] A reference to the draft involution of the R.C.P.(B.) Central Committee warning Baku officials against violations of the Soviet Government’s policy in respect of Persia (Iran). It was adopted by the Politbureau on October 3, 1921.
