Iran missile plan boost
TEHRAN: Iran’s parliament is preparing legislation that will allow the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) to boost the missile capability of the country, the Tehran Times daily reported.
The motion, once turned into law, will grant $600 million (R7.7 billion) to the IRGC to develop the missile programme. The move by the parliament follows recent legislation by the US Senate to impose new sanctions on the IRGC and any other entities involved in Iran’s missile programme.
Kazem Jalali, head of the Majlis Research Centre, said the legislation would boost IRGC’s missile programme.
