Ahmadinejad wants the global community to pay up for damages Iran suffered during World War II.
Planet Iran reported:
Calling the allies ‘conquering nations’ Ahmadinejad said that the U.S., Britain and Russia took advantage of Iran and the means that was put at their disposal by the then government of Iran, ending the war in their own favor. He said: “During this period the Iranian people were put under a lot of pressure and suffered a great deal of damage yet Iran was never compensated for its troubles.”

Ahmadinejad mentioned that following the Second World War, all three countries claimed damages to their own countries and received it. He added: “Iran not only was never compensated, but 10 years later when the Iranian people protested for the nationalization of their oil, Americans through a coup d’etat took Iranian oil from Iranians. So we are in the right to demand these damages for World War II and I have appointed a group to tabulate the sum total; shortly, in a letter to the Secretary General of the United Nations we will be demanding money due to us. This is justice.”
