IT 004           Central Treaty Organization (1 folder, Box 2)

The Baghdad Pact was a defensive organization for promoting shared political, military and

economic goals founded in 1955 by Turkey, Iraq, Great Britain, Pakistan and Iran. Similar to

the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, the main

purpose of the Baghdad Pact was to prevent communist incursions and foster peace in the Middle East.

It was renamed the Central Treaty Organization, or CENTO, in 1959 after Iraq pulled out of the Pact.

 

CENTO never actually provided its members with a means for guaranteeing collective defense. After

the withdrawal of Iraq from the Baghdad Pact, CENTO moved its headquarters to Ankara, Turkey, and

the United States continued to support the organization as an associate, but not as a member. In 1979,

the Iranian revolution led to the overthrow of the shah and Iran’s withdrawal from CENTO. Pakistan also

withdrew that year after determining the organization no longer had a role to play in bolstering its security.

CENTO formally disbanded in 1979.

 

This secondary subject category contains a single 1987 correspondence from Marshall T. Mays promoting the

reconstitution of CENTO as a way of creating a legitimate United States approach to Iran.

                   Note: The Library also has a secondary subject category on The Commission on Security and Cooperation in

Europe, sometimes referred to as the Helsinki Commission. (FG101) The Commission is an independent

Note: The Eighteen-Nation Disarmament Committee (1962-1968) is the predecessor group to the Conference

of the Committee on Disarmament (CCD) (1968-1978).  The CCD then reformed as the Conference on

Disarmament (CD) in 1979.  All entities were run by the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.  The membership

expanded with each re-organization, but the United States and Soviet Union were always the chairing members.
