Ahmadinejad to demand da

Teheran will seek reparations from the UN for damage done to Iran's economy during the Allied invasion of the country in 1941, Press TV reported on Saturday. According to the report, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during a Friday press conference in Copenhagen that he would write a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon "asking for Iran to be compensated" for suffering caused to its people during the war and for the usage of its resources by Allied powers. "Not only was Iran deprived of any compensation for World War II, but 10 years later, the Americans even went as far as arranging a coup to reverse a popular uprising that had led to the nationalization of oil," the Iranian president was quoted as saying.
