Contract 1907 was issued in 31Aug of 1907 between two governments of Russia and England in Saint Petersburg. The contract was issued under a condition, in which both powers decided to recognize each others influence in Iran and instead, overcome their common enemy by that time (Germany), since emergence of the government was going to be a threat for interests of both governments. Hence, Russia and England did their all best in issuing such contract, so that their interests can be provided in Iran. The contract about Iran included some clauses, which divided the country practically to three spheres of influence. North part was for Russia; east south was for England and other remained were neutral. The contract was issued in most critical conditions in Iran, which was Constitutional Era. Both colonial countries were trying to control revolution and change its results in their benefit. Therefore, due to weakness and dependence of many Qajar statesmen and lack of experience of constitutionalists, the question would be raised: what effects contract 1907 has had on Irans policy making process? Possible assumption can be as follows: efforts of Russia and England and conditions of Iran and whole world by that time have provided conditions for effects of the mentioned contract on Irans policy making.
