EU Parliament shot itself in foot by blacklisting IRGC: Iran FM

Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hossein Amirabdollahian has warned that Tehran will respond to the European Union Parliament’s blacklisting of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Referring to his presence in a closed session of the Iranian parliament (Majlis) on Sunday, FM Amirabdollahian said on Twitter that the European Parliament shot itself in the foot by proscribing the IRGC in a vote held earlier this week.

“The Majlis plans to reciprocate by including army elements of the European countries in (Iran’s) terrorism list,” said the minister in his tweet that was written in Farsi, adding that parliament members had appreciated efforts by the IRGC to protect Iran’s national security.
