Description
Reporter Andrew Manderstam speaks to an unidentified male correspondent about the Iranian situation and the United States Government. President Carter is putting no pressure on the Shah to leave the US after his doctors have told him his cancer treatment is over. After Mexico’s refusal, Egypt welcomed the Shah to finish his treatment there, but the US thinks this could worsen the fragile Middle Eastern situation. The US thinks he should go to a Caribbean Island. President Carter does not want to give an ultimatum or use violence against the Iranians who took hostages at the US Embassy in Iran.
