1967 Pakistani stamp, issued by the government of General Ayub Khan, commemorating Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's coronation as Shahanshah-e-Iran (previously Shah-e-Iran). The Ayub and Pahlavi governments, both vying for Capitalist Bloc patronage in the Cold War, enjoyed mutually cordial relations that endured successive Pakistani governments. In 1973, Iranian and Pakistani clandestine agencies colluded to dismiss the nationalist government in Pakistani Balochistan, concocting false evidence of a Russian-backed conspiracy to dismember both Pakistan and Iran. The Pahlavi government provided 30 American-made Cobra helicopters to the Pakistani army to quell the armed Baloch resistance that followed.
