Prime Minister

Sa'ed became Prime Minister after the fall of Ali Soheili's cabinet in 1943. Iran-Russia relations fell to low levels during his government after Sa'ed refused to entertain a Soviet demand for an oil concession in Soviet-occupied Northern Iran. [1] Sergei Kavtaradze publicly attacked the Prime Minister and demanded his resignation. The Soviet and Tudeh press echoed Kavtaradze's words. The Soviets inspired their Tudeh comrades in Iran to strike and demonstrate until Sa'ed resigned. Sa'ed resigned in November 1944. He banned the Tudeh Party during his premiership, and Arthur Millspaugh was also re-appointed Finance Minister under his administration. It is said that he used public transportation (such as bus), even when he was a Senator. He was fluent in Russian, French, and Turkish.
