Between 1926 and 1929, he was Secretary to the Iranian Legations in Paris, Warsaw, and London. He represented Iran at the London Economic Conference in 1933, and at the League of Nations; from 1934 to 1938 he was Chargé d'Affaires at Berne.
On his return to Iran, Mr. Entezam was Director of the Political Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1942, he was appointed Grand Master of Ceremonies at the Imperial Palace, and the next year became Minister of Public Health. Subsequently, he held the positions of Minister of Posts and Telegraph, Minister of Communications, and, in 1944-45, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Mr. Entezam represented his country at the San Francisco Conference in 1945 and at the first session of the General Assembly. He was a member of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine in 1947.
