TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission has decided to draft 14 motions to ward off the US’ hostile policies, a senior MP said.
Speaking to Press Shia, chairman of the commission, Heshmatollah Falahat Pishe, said his colleagues have decided to table 14 motions as part of a strategy to counter the hostile measures.
According to the motions, the administration, the ministries, and the executive organizations will have to carry out policies to deal with, foil, and publicize the US’ belligerent measures, he added.
The chairman of the commission said all organizations will have their respective duties under the planned motions, for instance, the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology would deal with US cyber-terrorism plots or the Ministry of Medicine will cope with bioterrorism threats.
He also pointed to a motion that will designate the US army as a terrorist group if Washington takes a similar measure against the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), saying that American troops will be treated like Daesh (ISIL) terrorists under the new motion.
It came after the Wall Street Journal quoted unnamed officials as saying that the United States is expected to designate the IRGC a terrorist organization.
The officials said the decision is expected to be announced by the US State Department as early as Monday.
