AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps says the US move to blacklist the IRGC as a terrorist organization is the result of debacles Washington has faced in the region.
The idiotic and illegal move by the adventurous US president and his circle is the result of their grudge and anger for chain defeats this pharaonic system has faced in the region as well as the deadly blows from the Iranian nation and this popular institution,' said IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari in a message published on Tuesday.
The United States officially designated Iranís IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization, according to a notice published in the US Federal Register on Monday, Reuters reported.
US President Donald Trump said last week he would make the symbolic, but unprecedented move which was immediately condemned by Iran. Majority of politicians from all sides of the Iranian political spectrum rallied in support of the IRGC in a bid to show their support. Also, the Iranian lawmakers, wearing the IRGCís olive green uniforms, attended the parliament on Sunday.
The Iranian press also opened their front pages with the news and reactions to the move. The reformist Etemadís page one title read 'Iím a guard' in a clear bipartisan support for the forces.
The IRGC expressed its gratitude for the show of support, promising 'a reciprocal response to the enemies, especially the rogue and terrorist-producing government of the US'.
The latest anti-Iran move of Trump received fierce reactions from the Iranian officials. The country's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in a letter to President Hassan Rouhani called for a retaliatory move by labeling the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) as a terrorist organization and the US government as a sponsor of terrorism.
