Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, gestures, as he delivers his speech, after unveiling a five-volume book set containing "Documents on the Allied Occupation of Iran during World War II", at the presidency compound in Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Ahmadinejad last year ordered the formation of a team to study the damages the country suffered from the 1941 Allied invasion in order to demand compensation. Britain and the Soviet Union invaded Iran on August 26, 1941, codenamed "Operation Countenance" to secure Iranian oil fields and ensure supply lines for the Soviets fighting Axis forces.
