In case of a final approval, an ad hoc committee will be set up to debate ways of filing a formal complaint against the US government in the international courts for its interference in Iran's internal affairs and causing damages, the report added.

Earlier this month, the US declassified documents, revealing the details of the CIA involvement in the coup against the democratically-elected prime minister of Iran 60 years ago.
