 Haiku, translated from English to Persian by the poet Ahmad Shamloo and E. Pashayi, a translator of Zen and Buddhist texts, was apparently the first official introduction* of Japanese poetry to the Iranian public, in the mid-1980s. The translations are based on parts of Haiku and History of Haiku by R.H. Blythe. 
* Although Sohrab Sepehri had translated a few haiku into Persian and adopted a “haiku-like style” in his own poetry a few decades prior to the publication of this translation, there had not been any actual publications on the subject, at least according to Massih Talebian, who has written about contemporary Persian haiku here.
