  • IRGC a pillar of Iran’s national power: Spokesman

The US is angry at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps because the IRGC is a pillar of Iran’s national power, has humiliated Israel and disrupted US domineering strategies in the region, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

“Hostile measures by US regime against Iranians are countless. Different and diverse aspects of US administrations’ crimes against Iranian nation expose fake, political human rights gestures of US officials and instrumental use of human rights,” Nasser Kan'ani said in a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

According to Tasnim news agency, the spokesman added “Devising coup d’état, providing support to 8-year Iraqi-imposed war on Iran, intentional downing of passenger plane, waging hybrid warfare, sponsoring MKO terrorists, imposing bans and maximum pressure against Iranians are only examples of US regime countless crimes against Iranian nation.”

“The reason behind US anger at IRGC, spread of lies & baseless allegations against it is clear; IRGC is a pillar of Iranian national power, has humiliated apartheid Zionist regime & disrupted US domineering strategies in the region,” he stated.

In remarks at a parliamentary meeting on Sunday, Speaker of the Iran's Parliament (Majlis) Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf warned of swift retaliatory action against the European Parliament’s plan to blacklist the IRGC, saying Iran is going to designate the armies of the European states in the region as terrorist organizations.

The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has warned the Europeans that they will have to suffer the consequences of repeating their past mistakes.
