RNA - "Of course, such behaviors are a start for the US decline and end. As the Nazi Germany's actions before the World War II ended the decadent thoughts of Social Nationalism, Trump's moves and measures herald the end of global arrogance and Zionism," Mareh Sedq said.
He expressed regret that Trump shows a hostile attitude towards not only the Islamic Republic but also the Iranian people and any freedom-seeking nation which wants to live independently, noting that the US and its regional allies want to form tens of Israeli-like countries in the region which are weak and incapable of living independently.
According to Fars News Agancy, his remarks came days after the United States designated the IRGC as a "foreign terrorist organization", marking the first time Washington has formally labelled another country's military a "terrorist group".
Responding to Washington's Monday move, Iran immediately declared the US as "state sponsor of terrorism" and American forces in the region "terrorist groups".
Iran's top security body, the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), in a statement issued on Monday evening declared the United States a “terrorist government”, and blacklisted the "CENTCOM and all its affiliates a terrorist group”.
The SNSC - that is headed by President Hassan Rouhani - condemned Washington's move, calling it “an illegal and dangerous action” that poses a “major threat to regional and international peace and security and grossly violates the rules of international law".
The statement further condemned the US decision as “unlawful and unreasonable action” prompted by the Islamic Republic's regional influence and success in fighting against terrorists, and blamed CENTCOM for harming Iran’s national security as well as ruining the lives of “innocent Iranian and non-Iranian individuals” to promote the US “aggressive policies” in West Asia (the Middle-East).
