Hi! What is the exact meaning of the following passage? It is from a political telegram, dating back to 1953,with a special shortened style. ( I will edit the text, if disordered, after submitting it).It is on oil dispute between Iran and England in 1953. Of course, the second sentence is problematic.
Position was at best ambiguous, requiring extensive argument even before impartial court which might be persuaded to accept a narrow Iranian view on the issue. This particularly so if history of negotiations produced to show change from wording preferred by British to that suggested by Mosadeq who British convinced clearly understands fears they entertain.
