AP (The Associated Press) July 7, 1951 TEHRAN, Iran, July 7 (AP)—Iran today ordered its consulate in Jerusalem to close down.

Government officials said there was no intention to withdraw Iran’s de facto recognition of Israel, but the move was interpreted here as intended to appease the Moslem Nationalists supporting Premier Mohammed Mossadegh.

An announcement said the Iranian legation in Hashemite Jordan would look after Iranian interests in Israel.
