The present article deals with Britain’s competitions with Russia aimed at controlling its policies in Iran; for this purpose, we focus mostly on the developments at the last fifteen years of the 19th century. Part of this period is concurrent with the administration of the British Conservative Party under the premiership of Lord Robert Cecil Salisbury in Britain and Sir Henry Drummond Wolff’s mission in Iran. The present study investigates policies of the Conservative Party against Iran over the said period and looks into the convergences as well as divergences between the British Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Indian Affairs, for finding a solution to safeguard the Indian boundaries against Russia.
