“The United States will be shocked by Iran’s retaliation if it imposes new sanctions on our country,” wrote Mohsen Rezaei, the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council and a senior general in the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), in his Instagram page.
“By imposing new sanctions, the US not only acts against Iran, but also scoffs at Europe, China and Russia. It means that the US disregards the UN Security Council,” he added.
“This enables us to act against Washington. Our counterattack will be more severe and decisive than the initial move,” he went on to say in a post entitled “Iran’s severe response to the extension of sanctions,” as reported by IFP.
