-- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plans to give copies of a book about Iran’s occupation by the Allies during World War II as gifts to the political delegations attending the 66th session of the UN General Assembly.

The annual session of the General Assembly opened in New York on September 13 with a fervent plea for cooperation in tackling looming crises from conflicts to climate change.

Ahmadinejad will go to New York late this week, taking 1000 English copies of “Documents on the Occupation of Iran during World War II” with him, Iran Book House Managing Director Ali Shojaei told the Persian service of FNA on Wednesday.

“Iran’s occupation by the Allies during World War II is an international issue… this book contains many documents referring to the abuses practiced by the Allies against the Iranian people,” he added.

Shojaei said that instances of abuse can prosecuted based on the documents gathered in the book.

“Documents on the Occupation of Iran during World War II”, which is composed of five volumes, has been compiled by a team of Iranian experts. The Persian version of the book was unveiled by Ahmadinejad during a ceremony in Tehran in July.

Former Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization director Hamid Baqaii, who was also former vice president for executive affairs and the caretaker of the Presidential Office, had previously said that they were compiling documents to demand compensation from the Allies for violation of Iran’s neutrality during World War II.
