Iran's hardline president has ordered the formation of a team to study the damages the country suffered from the 1941 Allied invasion in order to demand compensation. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran suffered immensely after it was invaded by Britain and the Soviet Union during World War II despite its declared neutrality and was never compensated. "A team has been assigned to calculate all the damages [inflicted on Iran] in the Second World War. This will be an invoice they [Allied powers] must pay to the Iranian nation," he said in remarks broadcast live on state television Saturday. Ahmadinejad didn't elaborate on the details but he had earlier said he would write to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to ask that Iran be compensated for the damages caused to its people during the war and for the use of its territory and resources by Allied powers.
