as of 6 May to state whether the withdrawal of all USSR troops from the whole of Iran had been completed,

which to ascertain through its official representatives whether all USSR troops have been withdrawn from
the whole of Iran;
To request the Iranian Government to submit a complete report on the subject to the Security Council
immediately upon the receipt of the information which will enable it so to do; and, in case it is unable

at that time;
To consider, immediately following the receipt from the Iranian Government of the report requested, what
further proceedings may be required.
