Iran warns U.S. against new sanctions

Posted October 09, 2017

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has warned the United States against blacklisting their force, saying that Tehran would treat USA troops like Daesh terrorists.

"The Islamic Republic (of Iran) sees implementation of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) as the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal and as we have declared in the past too, if the USA new sanctions act comes into action, the country (the US) should transfer its regional bases to 2,000km away, that is as far as the range of Iranian missiles", General Jafari said on Sunday.

Jafari said the IRGC - the most powerful branch of Iran's armed forces - would treat USA military forces in the region no differently than it treats Islamic State terrorists in such a case.

"If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American army to be like Islamic State all around the world particularly in the Middle East", Jafari said, according to Tasnim.

US President Donald Trump campaigned against the nuclear deal with Iran and vowed to abandon it if elected.

"The Islamic Republic intends to resolve the regional issues at a place other than the negotiating table".

US President Donald Trump will announce new US responses to Iran's missile tests, support for "terrorism" and cyber operations as part of his new Iran strategy, the White House said on Friday.

"The Americans should know that the Islamic Republic would use the Trump administration's stupid behavior toward JCPOA to make great strides in advancing its defensive, regional and missile programs", he said.

He went on to say if the USA government is truly considering to include IRGC in the list of terrorist groups, the IRGC will treat U.S. army in the same vein as ISIS terrorist group.

The Qods Force and individuals and entities associated with IRGC are on the list, but the organization as a whole is not.

"During their meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly last month, Iran told [world powers] that it could discuss the missile program to remove concerns", an Iranian source told Reuters.
