Despite the fact that Iran had declared neutrality during the WWII, both Russia and British troops invaded Iran from north and south. During this conference, important strategic decisions had been made on the war. The meeting among leaders of Soviet Union, United States, and Britain had been arranged during an earlier meeting in Moscow among foreign ministers. Iran's sovereignty was guaranteed under the closing statement and Mohammad reza Shah Pahlavi, the last Iranian king who was 23 at the time met briefly with the three leaders. After this event three major streets in Tehran were named after Joseph Stalin, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. All these streets were renamed afterwards because all occupying states proved to be obnoxious for Iranians.
