Baeidinejad: Trump decision about IRGC a gift to Netanyahu

London, Iran's Ambassador in London Hamid Baeidinejad said on Monday that White House's decision to blacklist Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) at a time when it is helping the floodhit people with all in power is a gift to Netanyahu to assist him in the Israeli elections.

In a tweet on Monday, he declared that by labeling IRGC as a terrorist group, Trump made his most stupid political decision.

Following the US antagonistic move to place name of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on list of terrorist groups, Supreme Council of National Security introduced US government as sponsor of terrorism and US Central Command called CENTCOM as among the terrorist groups.

The council strongly condemned the US unlawful and dangerous move in branding the IRGC as foreign terrorist group.

It also described the baseless measure as a major threat to the international and regional peace and security, considering it a vivid violation of international laws and UN Charter.
