More than eight months after Soheili presented his cabinet of ministers and started serving as Prime Minister, Majlis approved his cabinet. Iran was under occupation of Allied Powers; U.K., U.S., and U.S.S.R. and Mohammad Reza Shah was just an appointed puppet after his father was overthrown and sent to exile by the occupation forces. The whole parliament approval scenario seems to serve as legitimizing later documents signed by the Iranian government.
In less than a month, on Nov, 28, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill arrive In Tehran and sign the famous Tehran Declaration. Iran signed many concessions afterwards which were not in her favor as a sovereign country.
Soheili's cabinet did not last long and he resigned on April, 6, 1944.
Soheili was born in Tabriz from a poor family and he made his way up the political scene with hard effort. After serving as Minister of Internal Affairs in Hasanali Mansour's cabinet, he first became Prime Minister on March, 9, 1942.
Soheili passed away in London in 1958 at the age of 62.
