Iran Chamber of Commerce condemns US blacklisting IRGC

IRNA – Iran Chamber of Commerce condemned the US designation of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization.

‘Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) condemns the US belligerent government’s move to blacklist the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps,’ reads a statement by the private sector’s parliament published on Tuesday.

‘The Chamber of Commerce considers the move as a sign of the US government’s wrath for not reaching its sanctions objectives, especially in crippling the Islamic Republic’s foreign trade,’ adds the statement.

The organization goes on to describe the IRGC as “the official and legal armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran”, highlighting its “major role in crushing terrorist groups, maintaining the security as well as internal and regional stability”.

The Iranian private sector says blacklisting the IRGC goes against the international norms, saying the Iranian nation will stand firmer against any sanctions and blacklists.
