Iran seeks money from U.S. over 1953 coup that empowered American-backed shahBreaking News
The Iranian parliament wants the U.S. to compensate the country for damages from a series of events dating to the 1953 coup that increased the power of the pro-American shah.
The parliament on Tuesday passed a bill requiring its government to demand compensation from the United States for "spiritual and material" damages.
Also Tuesday, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council voted to file a complaint with the International Court of Justice against the U.S. over last month's Supreme Court ruling that approved confiscation of Iranian assets.
