Iran: Revolutionary Guard Vow to Designate US Army as Equivalent to ISIS

Iran: Revolutionary Guard Vow to Designate US Army as Equivalent to ISIS

Jafari also mentioned that if the USA slaps on new sanctions, it would be smart for the U.S.to "transfer its regional bases to 2,000km away, that is as far as the range of Iranian missiles".

"If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American army to be like Islamic State all around the world particularly in the Middle East", Jafari said.

He said any new U.S. sanctions would ruin the chances for any kind of interaction "forever".

The U.S. has numerous military bases within 500 kilometers (310 miles) of Iran, namely in countries like Bahrain, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday defended the landmark nuclear deal agreed with Western powers in 2015, insisting that Trump could not undermine it.

Tehran has warned it may begin to equate U.S. forces to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) if a report is true that Washington will include the elite wing of the Iranian Army in the list of terrorist organizations.

Jafari said Iran "deems the implementation of CAATSA equal to America's unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA" or the nuclear accord which Tehran reached with the USA and other countries in 2015 to limit its nuclear program in exchange for lifting of sanctions.

He said such moves by the US will eliminate "any chance for engagement forever".

The White House announced Friday that Trump will announce in the coming days tough new measures for responding to Iran's "bad behavior", including responses to Tehran's ballistic missile tests, support for terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, and cyber operations.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran intends to solve the regional issues somewhere else other than the negotiating table; (the USA should know that) there is (absolutely) nothing and no one to negotiate about or with", the IRGC chief commander stressed.

On September 21, following a ministerial meeting at the United Nations on the Iran nuclear agreement US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson admitted that reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) show that Tehran is acting in compliance with the nuclear accord.
