  7. 7.  The main purpose of the Baghdad Pact was to preventcommunist incursions and foster peace in the Middle East. Although the fear of commu-nist expansion in the NorthernTier region (i.e., Turkey, Persia, and Afghanistan) was veryreal, it was unlikely that Persia, Iraq, Turkey, and Pakistanwould have come together on their own initiative withoutBritish and American assurances. CENTO’s supreme source of authority, met annually at theprime ministers’ or foreign ministers’ level, alternatively inTehran, Islamabad, Ankara, London, and Washington.
