The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has taken a swipe at Trump’s hostile stances, saying Iran will continue to develop its missile capability in a faster pace.
The IRGC has, in a statement, thanked Iranian officials and people from all walks of life for their unflinching support in giving a crushing response to US President Donald Trump’s gibberish against this revolutionary institution, and stressed it remains determined to press ahead with its fight against the hegemony system and Zionism and to further develop the country’s missile defence capability.
“The hostile positions of the rogue and bird-brained US president in insulting the Iranian nation and speaking of imposing unfair new sanctions against the IRGC indicate the failure of the evil policies of the authorities of the White House and the Israeli regime to change the map of the region and disintegrate and weaken Islamic countries and also show their anger at the IRGC’s a role in this domain,” reads part of the statement.
The statement notes that national unity and consensus in offering unflagging support to the IRGC and the condemnation of Trump’s ranting and raving all have a meaning.
“This popular institution (IRGC), based on its revolutionary and basic mission, will continue its incessant fight against the hegemony system and Zionism with a vengeance, and will not hesitate, even a moment, to defend the Islamic Revolution and the country’s national interests,” the statement underscores.
The statement also thanks Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for his backing, and appreciates the support of all people, top religious clerics, heads of the three branches of government, Islamic seminary schools, universities, political parties and elites as well as cultural, artistic, sports and scientific figures together with Iranian expatriates.
The statement has stressed that the IRGC, backed by popular support and under the command of the Leader, has worked in tandem with other branches of the Armed Forces to safeguard the Revolution and the country.
By God’s grace, and much to the chagrin of the enemies, especially the US and the evil international network of Zionism, Iran’s regional influence will grow and its missile capability will further be developed, reads the statement.
