The European Union is planning to blacklist the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), triggering retaliation from Iran in response. Its parliament speaker said Tehran would designate troops from European countries as terrorist organizations. Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bakr Kalibaf told a meeting on Sunday that the Iranian parliament would take “retaliatory, swift and decisive action” against those who plan to ban or label the IRGC as a terrorist group, according to a news agency. Huh.

Parliament stated that the Parliament would designate European forces as terrorist organizations and implement all measures to counter them. Kalibaf also condemned the West, including European governments, and claimed that they had a “dangerous tendency” to support terrorism against Iran. He also warned that doing so could trigger a wave of retaliation by the Islamic Republic. Furthermore, the speaker condemned Europe for its history of allegedly supporting the Mujahideen-e-Khalk Organization (MKO) terrorist organization.

The European Parliament’s decision to blacklist the IRGC has been condemned by some of Iran’s top officials and commanders. IRGC commander Major General Hossein Salami said, “Europe has not learned lessons from its past mistakes and thinks it can weaken the IRGC.”

Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani said the EU’s move came from displeasure over how the IRGC has fought vigorously against terrorism. The reason behind the anger of the “global club of terrorists” is clear, he said on Twitter on Friday. The IRGC is the largest counter-terrorism organization in the world.”

Kalibaf also criticized the first decision and said “If the European Union takes such a decision and lists the Guards as a terrorist organization, it means that the European Union acts as a supporter of terrorism, because the IRGC is the largest and most successful anti-terrorist organization,” Iran International reported.

In addition, Iran’s military issued a statement on Friday saying that the decision only showed Europe’s “desperation” and its inability to support the unrest in the country. “The European Parliament’s move against an anti-terrorist institution that claims to be fighting terrorism is a result of their frustration and failure to support the recent riots in Iran,” the statement said.
