Ahmadinejad to write letter to UN on WW2 compensation

Copenhagen, Dec 18, – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he would write a letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to ask for compensation for damages inflicted on Iran during the Second World War.
Speaking in a press conference in his hotel in Copenhagen, Ahmadinejad said the 3 victorious countries of the WW2, i.e., US, the Soviet Union, and Britain used Iran’s land and facilities to win the war.
“In that period, Iranian people were under considerable pressures but they were not granted any compensation,” the president said.”
“These countries asked for their own compensation and received it. However, not only no compensation was given to Iran, but also when ten years later, Iranians wanted to nationalize their oil industry, the US prevented it with a military coup.”
“We will demand compensation for damages inflicted on us during the Second World War. I have assigned a group to assess the damage and I will write a letter to UN secretary general so that Iran is granted compensation.”
This is the very meaning of justice, the president underlined.
More details on the president’s press conference would follow soon.
