Iranian Foreign Minister warns about consequences of US labeling IRGC as terror entity

Moscow, Apr 14 (Sputnik/UNI) The labeling of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization by the United States will entail consequences and Tehran is going to warn all foreign ministers about them through letters, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said on Sunday.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump designated the IRGC as a terrorist entity, which marked the first time ever since the United States named a part of a foreign government a terrorist organization.

"Letters will be sent today to the foreign ministers of all countries about these actions [the United States' designation of the IRGC], which will warn them about consequences of unprecedented and dangerous US actions as well as about stances that they will need to take in this context," Zarif was quoted as saying by the IRNA news agency.

In response to Washington's move, the Iranian Supreme National Security Council accused the US government of supporting terrorism and recognized the US Central Command as a terrorist organization itself.
