World In­debted to IRGC in Fight­ing Ter­ror­ism

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN (MNA) – Gov­ern­ment Spokesper­son warned that Iran would deem in the same front as ISIL ter­ror­ists any coun­try which des­ig­nates the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guard Corps as a ‘ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion’.

Mo­ham­mad Baqer Nobakht made the re­marks in a brief­ing ses­sion on Tues­day, in re­ac­tion to some Western me­dia spec­u­la­tion that U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump was ex­pected to la­bel Is­lamic Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guard Corps (IRGC) a ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion.

IRGC, which is pri­mar­ily re­spon­si­ble for na­tional se­cu­rity in Iran, is also one of the strong­est forces in com­bat­ing ISIL ter­ror­ists in the re­gion. “Rouhani ad­min­is­tra­tion’s po­si­tions to­ward the IRGC are very clear,” Nobakht said in his brief­ing ses­sion. “The IRGC is an of­fi­cial and rev­o­lu­tion­ary or­ga­ni­za­tion of Iran’s es­tab­lish­ment.”

He went on to add, “the world needs to re­gard the IRGC re­al­is­ti­cally and con­firm the Guards’ ef­fec­tive de­fense against the at­tacks of ter­ror­ists, es­pe­cially ISIL.”

Nobakht fur­ther called for sta­bil­ity and calm in Ira­nian mar­kets un­af­fected by the com­ments that the US Pres­i­dent Trump may make by the end of the week as he would be ready to submit his re­port on Iran’s com­pli­ance with the nu­clear deal to the Congress.“We all need to unite against a man who speaks a lot of non­sense,” Nobakht said.

“The least that the nu­clear deal did for us was that it re­vealed to the world that Iran is in com­pli­ance with its in­ter­na­tional com­mit­ments while the U.S. was iso­lated. The oath-break­ing coun­try is the U.S. Iran did not suf­fer any loss, rather it proved its right­ful­ness to the world.”
