IRGC Popular in Baghdad, Erbil, Damascus, Beirut: Iran President

Iranian president has highlighted the role played by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps in saving regional states from terrorism, saying the IRGC is now popular not only in Iran, but also in Iraq, Iraqi Kurdistan region, Syria, and Lebanon.

Speaking in a cabinet session held on Wednesday in Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani warned the US against making the ‘grave mistake’ of blacklisting the IRGC as a terrorist organization, and underlined its significance in regional fight against terrorism.

“It is totally clear today which government […] is violating the international regulations, and which country is respected by world nations,” Rouhani noted.

“It is totally clear today which government […] is violating the international regulations, and which country is respected by world nations,” Rouhani noted.

“If the US wants to make its next mistake by taking any measure against the IRGC, then that will be a grave mistake,” he noted, adding that the IRGC is not just a military organization, but a body that Iranian people love and has always defended the country’s national interests during days of danger.

“The IRGC is not just popular among the Iranian nation; it is also popular among the Iraqi people because it has saved Baghdad; among the Iraqi Kurds as it has saved Erbil; among the people of Damascus and Syria because it has saved Damascus.”

“It is also loved by the people of Lebanon because it has been a supporter of Lebanon’s dignity and independence. The IRGC has always helped the innocent people and stood against terrorists,” Rouhani added.

“The Americans wanted to keep ISIS in this region for 20 years and use it as an instrument; however, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps humiliated the ISIS by supporting the nations of Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon,” Rouhani said.

Therefore, he added, the US has every right to be angry with the IRGC.

“The Iranian Army, the IRGC, and the Basij [volunteer forces] are not separate from the nation,” the Iranian president said, stressing that there is no difference between various Iranian bodies when it comes to countering enemy plots

“We are all integrated and standing in the same line,” he underlined, adding that the resistant nation of Iran will stand against plots.
