Zarif Briefs MPs on Trump’s Threats against JCPOA
Local Editor

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif attended a parliamentary session to brief the lawmakers on a range of issues, including recent US threats against the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

The closed-door meeting on Tuesday mainly focused on three issues, including the nuclear deal and the recent Kurdish secession referendum in northern Iraq as well as the Syria crisis, Iranian official news agencies cited the lawmakers at the session as saying.

The briefing session comes as US President Donald Trump is expected to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization in his planned October 15 speech.

Moreover, Zarif is reportedly planning to announce that he will not certify the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015.

On Tuesday, a key Iranian parliamentary body said the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC] reserves the right to treat US military forces as terrorists if Washington blacklists the elite force.

In a Tuesday statement, the Iranian Majlis [parliament] Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy slammed the possible designation by the Trump administration against the IRGC as "idiotic" and "hideous" and noted, "The IRGC is entitled to treat the US forces the same way it treats terrorist groups" in case the reports of such a blacklisting turn out to be true.

"In recent years, the IRGC has played a valuable part in restoring security to Iraq and Syria and fighting terrorist groups, particularly Daesh, which are US lackeys in the world. If it was not for such a role, this strategic region would have faced worrying crises," the statement said.

The parliamentary committee said it would support any retaliatory measure by the IRGC against US military forces under the Iranian law on countering US adventurist and terrorist activities in the region.

Trump's potential plan against the IRGC has already faced international opposition, with Russia and France warning against the ramifications of such a decision.

The IRGC chief commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, has also said that Iran would treat US troops like Daesh terrorists if the IRGC was designated as a terrorist organization by the US.

Trump's efforts to blacklist the IRGC come as the advisors of the elite force are currently assisting Iraqi and Syrian forces in their anti-terrorism campaign against Daesh [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISISL'] Takfiri terrorists and other similar groups in both countries.
