We start from an event on July 21, 1945, the cease-fire agreement between France and Vietnam was signed.

The agreement was signed at the end of the Geneva conference which was also attended by representatives from the United States of America, Britain, China and the Soviet Union. The agreement followed the defeat of France in Vietnam thanks to the ardent resistance of the Vietnamese army in the battle of Dien Bien Phu. However, under US pressure, in the agreement, the representatives agreed the division of Vietnam and ordered all foreign troops to leave Vietnam.Contrary to the content of the agreement, the United States sent troops to Vietnam and supported the establishment of the South Vietnamese state.As a result, war broke out between the North Vietnamese army and the South Vietnamese army. The war ended in 1975 with the defeat of North Vietnam and the United States. Finally, Vietnam re-united in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

 

Moving to the event on July 21, 1952, a massive demonstration of the Iranian people protesting against Iran's new Prime Minister, Qawamus-Salthanah.

A massive demonstration of the Iranian people protesting against Iran's new Prime Minister, Qawamus-Salthanah took place, following the resignation of Prime Minister Musadeq over the pressure of the Shah regime.
