Iran warns United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards as terrorist group

Iran reportedly open to talking about ballistic missile arsenal

Iran reportedly open to talking about ballistic missile arsenal

The warning comes as US President Trump is expected to announce his new Iran policy in the coming days.

On Saturday, Iran's president defended the nuclear deal and said not even 10 Donald Trumps can roll back its benefits to Iran.

Iran is warning the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and says USA regional military bases will be at risk if new sanctions are passed.

The head of the elite military unit also made a veiled threat to attack United States military bases in the region.

Jafari also mentioned that if the USA slaps on new sanctions, it would be smart for the U.S.to "transfer its regional bases to 2,000km away, that is as far as the range of Iranian missiles".

The US has military bases in countries neighboring Iran, about 300 miles (500 km) from Iran's borders.

US President Donald Trump grudgingly signed the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" on August 2 after the US Congress overwhelmingly approved the measure despite Trump's reservations about how it might affect his desire for improved relations with Moscow.

They think that she's wise beyond her years and therefore more than capable of navigating this next chapter of her life. Older sister Kim Kardashian even went so far to shut down a rumored story about her reaction to the news.

Tehran has warned it may begin to equate USA forces to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) if a report is true that Washington will include the elite wing of the Iranian Army in the list of terrorist organizations.

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard special forces participate in military manoeuvers at an undisclosed location near the Gulf Sea 03 April 2006.

Jafari also warned the U.S. that a negative categorization of the Guard would eliminate "any chance for [bi-lateral] engagement forever".

General Jafari further noted that if Americans are taking such measures in order to ultimately take Iran to the negotiating table on regional issues, they have chosen a totally wrong path.

Away from CAATSA that puts Iran under presidential executive order 13224 and considers the IRGC as an entity supporting terrorist groups, Gen. Jafari noted reports coming from Washington that the USA president's new strategy intends to designate the IRGC itself as a terrorist organization, and issued a tough warning to Donald Trump, saying, "If reports prove to be true that the stupid U.S. administration intends to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization, then the IRGC will also specify the United States army as a group (and target) like ISIL in all parts of the world, specially the Middle-East".

"He's looking at all of the bad behavior of Iran, not just the nuclear deal as bad behavior, but the ballistic missile testing, destabilizing of the region, Number One state sponsor of terrorism, cyber attacks, illicit nuclear program", she said.
