Abstract

This research deals with the Iranian- Soviet relation during the temporary government (12 Fepruery 1979- 5 November 1979) which was formed by Mahdi Bazergan. The relation between the two states were characterized by new political development that covered the economic relations which were the most impotant feature of their relation during the previous period. In view of the soviet union the most important thing was the severe enmity shown by the Iranian revolution towards the united states. However, the adherents of the new Iranian Govrnment prevented this. This made the Soviet union follow its tradidonal policy towards Iran by using the soviet –bucked left –wing trends inside Iran particularly the communist party known as "Tuda" or by trying to use the Kurdish movement which started to ask for its rights after the changing of the regime. Nevertheless, the Sovit policy towards Iran was characterized in general by awaiting and not letting the new Iranian leader ship be excited inorder not to approach the united states again since the Islamic ideology of the new regime contradicts with the communist ideology of the Soviet union.
