Iran Threatens Canada After the Latter Lists IRGC as Terrorist Group

Nasser Kanaani, the spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, strongly condemned the Canadian government for classifying the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

Kanaani described the decision as a “hostile act that is contrary to the accepted norms and principles of international law, including the principle of sovereign equality and non-interference in the internal affairs of states, and a clear example of a violation of Iran’s national sovereignty.”

He added this “irresponsible and provocative move is a continuation of the wrong path that the Canadian government has taken over the past decade under the influence of warmongers, real violators of human rights, and the main perpetrators of terrorism.”

Kanaani emphasized that the “disgusting act of the Canadian government against the IRGC will have no impact on the production of legitimate and deterrent power and the increase in the level and scope of the grandeur of this honorable force born from the Iranian nation.”

Lastly, he declared that the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves its right to a proportionate and reciprocal response to this action that “contravenes international law and is against the Iranian nation and government.”

Canada had already listed the IRGC’s overseas arm, the Quds Force, as a terrorist group. It is important to note that once a group is placed on the terror list, police can charge anyone financially or materially supporting the group and banks can freeze assets. (INN / VFI News)
