The American-British coup of August 1953, which led to the downfall of Iran's legitimate government at the time (Mossadegh's government), is a reminder of a critical moment in Iran's political history before the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The coup of August 19, which is part of the series of American and British interventions in Iran during the victory of the nationalization movement of the oil industry in Iran, took place at a time when the International Court of Justice had voted in favor of Iran in the matter of British-Iranian oil contracts.
In recent years, new documents have been published about foreign interference in the August 19 coup, and even some American officials have acknowledged the direct role of this country and Britain in this coup.
