Iranian FM Claims EU Will Not Implement Anti-IRGC Resolution

Sunday, 01/22/2023

Iran’s foreign minister says EU officials including Josep Borrell have stated they are not looking to implement a proposed resolution against the Revolutionary Guard.

In an interview with ICANA new agency about the recent resolution adopted by the European Parliament to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said “the European Parliament has made an emotional decision and rationality did not rule their meeting”.

“We have been trying to get the European Union to change its direction for months, and …they concluded that this issue should not be raised in the European Union as the decisions of the council of ministers are binding. However, they passed the resolution in the European Parliament as a show,” he added.

The Iranian foreign minister claimed that according to conversations with Joseph Burrell and the rotating president of the European Union, they are not seeking to implement the resolution and that the resolution is only an expression of the feelings of some European Parliament members.

Regarding the possibility of Iran's withdrawal from the NPT by expelling IAEA inspectors he threatened that “a small number of European political leaders have no experience in diplomacy, including the German foreign minister, so if they do not correct their positions, anything is conceivable.”

Iranians launched a movement to ask European politicians to designate the IRGC as a terror group, as it was responsible for leading most of the security forces who killed, maimed and arrested protesters.
