Reacting to the US announcement about recognizing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari announced on Sunday that in case the US finalizes the issue, it will lose today’s peace in West Asia.
“If US threatens our national security we will put doing countermeasures on agenda,” Jafari said.
It is more likely that US government will put IRGC in terrorist list on Monday, Wall Street Journal quoted US officials.
Reacting to the US possible act against IRGC, Chairman of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iranian Parliament Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh also said that double-urgency bill has been prepared to designate US military forces as terrorists.
“If Americans make this mistake and put IRGC in terror list, this double-urgency bill will be approved in the Iranian Parliament,” the senior MP told MNA on Sunday.
In addition, a number of 255 members of Iranian Parliament in a joint statement on the same day said any action taken by the US administration against IRGC would be responded with a countermeasure.
