IRGC ready to help government in resistance economy: Commander

MASHHAD (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari voiced the IRGC’s readiness to help the administration in advancing the objectives of Resistance Economy.

If the administration seeks implementing economic activities based on Resistance Economy, the capabilities of the IRGC and Baseej (volunteer forces) can greatly help, the commander told Tasnim.

Resistance Economy refers to a set of guidelines set by Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to promote domestic growth, reduce reliance on oil and counter foreign pressures on the country.

Ayatollah Khamenei in a proclamation in 2014 outlined a series of general policies to boost Iran’s economy and lower its vulnerabilities.

The proclamation, laying out a grand plan for Resistance Economy in Iran, was issued after consultations with the country’s Expediency Council and based upon the Clause 1 of Article 110 of the Iranian Constitution.

The leader also described Resistance Economy as a dynamic and long-term strategy that can help Iran realize its economic objectives.
