Iranian MPs Hold Extraordinary Meeting with IRGC Commanders

Amid regional developments, a number of Iranian MPs held extraordinary session with IRGC commanders and will meet them again tomorrow.

Members of Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission held an extraordinary meeting with a number of IRGC Intelligence commanders on Tuesday morning, and will convene once again on Wednesday.


According to a report by IRNA, as translated by IFP, during the meeting, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps commanders briefed the parliamentarians on the latest security situation in the region.

According to Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, the spokesperson for the commission, the participants reviewed security issues in the region including the presence of foreign forces, particularly the US, in the Middle East, and the motivation and strategies behind this presence.

They also discussed the enemies’ strategies like the proxy wars Saudi Arabia is following in the region by creating ISIS, he said.

They have also talked about the decisive role Americans are playing in regional wars, and their efforts to turn the Islamic world into bloody areas with the aid of the UK and France.

According to Naqavi Hosseini, the lawmakers further said that the US, the Zionist regime [Israel] and their allies in the region have turned clashes into sectarian and religious wars.

He said Russia’s engagement in the war against ISIS and other Takfiri [extremist] terrorists transformed the US and Saudi plots and reinforced regional convergence, particularly the four-party alliance between Iran, Russia, Syria, and the Lebanese Hezbollah, putting the terrorists in a weak position in Syria.

The two sides will once again meet on Wednesday morning.
