Iran: US aiding terrorism if Revolutionary Guards declared terrorists

DS    
   SEVERE THREAT Iran is furious the US is planning to blacklist its Revolutionary Guards

Only days remain until U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to roll out a more aggressive plan for containing Iran, including the fate of a favorite punching bag: the 2015 nuclear deal.

If Trump refuses to certify, the Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to restore the sanctions against the Islamic Republic that the United States has agreed to waive under the deal.

Iran's statements mirror those of the U.S., with President Donald Trump having recently accused the Islamic Republic of supporting terrorism.

Iran warned the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and said US regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed, state media reported on Sunday.

The Iranian foreign minister warned that in case of such a move, the U.S. would become more isolated and despicable among the Iranian people.

"He'll make that later this week", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters when asked about the certification decision and the administration's broader strategy on Iran.




Meanwhile, the Iranian army vowed it would teach Washington "new lessons" to make it "understand the new meaning of power in the world", according to the deputy chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri. "The Americans have driven the world insane by their behavior".

"By taking a stance against the Revolutionary Guards and designating it a terrorist group, the Americans would be joining the terrorists' camp", Mohammad Baqer Nobakht said in a weekly news conference broadcast live on state television.

Iran's moderate president Hasan Rouhani won re-election less than five months ago after a campaign in which he called for better ties with the outside world and reform at home, openly criticizing the influence of the IRGC which he accused of backing his hardline opponent.

Iran's nuclear deal with world major powers was a "big test" for all signatories and other states in the world, as keeping promise is the base of world trust in a state, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, APA reported citing IRNA. He is also expected to designate Iran's most powerful security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist organization. While figures in the military seem willing to greet Trump's addition of their IRGC brethren to the terrorist list as a declaration of war, the reformists are counseling patience and the need to exploit contradictions among Western allies.

"Whatever they do we will take reciprocal measures".

"Even Iran's rationale of not returning to the table over the nuclear agreement has been welcome by world actors and the USA has failed to find company in its position".
