U.S. Pressure on Iran Regime Should Increase

In an unprecedented move, U.S. President Donald Trump announced last week that the Iranian Regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is being designated a foreign terrorist organisation.

What Does the US's IRGC Designation Mean?

What Does the US's IRGC Designation Mean?

By Amir Taghati

On Monday, the US announced that it would add Iran regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to its list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) next week.

This was the first time that the US had ever included a foreign country’s army to its FTO, which made this case especially newsworthy, particularly as it is now close to the one-year anniversary of the US withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal.
