The first joint combat success of the U.S.S.R. and Great Britain during World War II was a joint operation to preventively occupy Iran in August 1941. In line with assessments of the political leadership of Britain and the U.S.S.R., at that time there was a direct threat of Iran being involved in the war as an ally of the Nazi bloc. The operation codenamed Operation Countenance was aimed at defending Iran’s oil deposits from possible seizure by German troops and at ensuring the security of the transport corridor to provide assistance to the Soviet Union.

British troops occupied southern Iran and Soviet troops occupied northern Iran. The occupation resulted in ousting Shah Reza Pahlavi who supported Hitler, and power was transferred to the shah’s son Mohammad.

In 1943, Iran officially joined the United Nations and became a member of the anti-Hitler coalition.

 

 Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Britain: “Britain and Russia were fighting for their lives. Inter arma silent leges. We may be glad that in our victory the independence of Persia has been preserved.”
