ظرریف

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammad Javad Zarif described Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) designation of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) by US as a “gift” to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a “dangerous misadventure” in the region.

Responding the action by US, Zarif tweeted, “A(nother) misguided election-eve gift to Netanyahu. A(nother) dangerous U.S. misadventure in the region”.

Following the tweet, he also posted a photo of a Times of Israel report, saying “Netantahu says Trump labeled Revolutionary Guard a terror group at his request”.

Earlier, in a letter to Iran’s President and the head of Supreme National Security Council, Zarif called for designating United States Central Command (CENTCOM) as a terror group in Iran’s terrorism blacklist.
