Iranian Foreign Minister in a message warned loser states of the region to stop scapegoating, and said that targeting the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps will not revive IS (Daesh), Al-Nusra Front terrorists.
'Losers of our region's War on Terror cannot rescind history. Targeting #IRGC won't revive IS and Nusra—their clients and very creations,' Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday.
He added 'Game over, ladies and gentlemen: time to face the fact that you've exhausted every wrong choice and scapegoating won’t be your panacea'.
The IRGC is the Iranian government's primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign,' US President Donald Trump said in a statement on Monday.
“We will continue to increase financial pressure and raise the costs on the Iranian regime for its support of terrorist activity until it abandons its malign and outlaw behavior,' Trump said.
In reaction to the US designation, Iran’s Ambassador to London Hamid Baeedinejad said the US move against the IRGC at a time when the Iranian military body is helping the flood-hit people with all in power is a gift to Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu to assist him in the elections.
The latest anti-Iran move of Trump was also met with fierce reactions from Iranian officials.
Foreign Minister Zarif recommended that Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) should add American forces in West Asia, known as the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), to its terrorist groups' list.
