Iranian parliament

Iranian Parliament has approved a plan to start legal action against the United States and Great Britain for damages sustained from the August 1953 Coup that toppled the government of Prime Minister Mosadeq.

The Khaneh Mellat website reports that the plan is entitled “legal and political pursuit of the role and interference of the United States and Great Britain in the August 19, 1953 coup d’etat against the National government of Iran.”

The plan entails establishing a committee to pursue the case and report to the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission every three months.

Once the committee has come up with a reasonable estimate of the damages, the administration will reportedly be charged with pursuing legal action in international courts and bodies.
