RNA – In an exclusive interview with the parliamentary correspondent of the Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Ahmad Salek-Kashani, a member of the Cultural Commission in Iran’s Islamic Consultative Assembly, referred to the designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization by the United States and said, “In its essence, the United States is essentially a state terrorist.”
The representative of the people of Esfahan in the Islamic Consultative Assembly added, “The United States has committed many crimes over the past forty years against Iran and other countries and for this reason, it can be said that the United States is the main cause of terrorism in in the world and the region.”
Hujjat al-Islam Salek-Kashani said the most important motivation for the United States to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization is to protect its own interests and said, “Under the cover of fighting against terrorism, the arch-terrorist United States took these shameless actions against Iran in order to achieve its goals and desires.”
His Eminence said, “By breaking the slogan of human rights, the United States violates its founding principles and doesn’t respect the humanitarian interests of nations through bullying on the global level.”
He added that in opposition to all international treaties and treaties, the American government has designated a powerful, strong and deterrent armed force such as the IRGC as a terrorist organization.
“The American military is undoubtedly a terrorist organization,” he stressed.
Hujjat al-Islam Salek-Kashani concluded, “By launching a proxy war, the United States created Takfiri groups such as Daesh and the al-Nusrah Front to carry out their terrorist acts. Therefore, the United States is a symbol of terrorism in the region and in the world.”
The United States officially designated the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization, according to a notice published in the United States Federal Register on April 15th.
