IRGC Commander: Iran not to negotiate with USA on regional issues

If the United States were to "stupidly" take that step, it should perhaps consider moving its military bases outside the 2,000km range of Iranian missiles, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari suggested, in remarks carried by the IRGC's website.

The chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard threatened Sunday that if the United States designates the Guard as a terrorist group, it will consider the US Army as equivalent to the Islamic State terror group.

Revolutionary Guard chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said that if these reports of the United States' "stupidity" are true, it will equate USA troops, especially in the Middle East, to IS terrorists.

In the part that pertains to Iran (also known as Countering Iran's Destabilizing Actions Act or CIDAA), the sanctions act focuses on punishments specifically addressed at the IRGC.

"The Islamic Republic intends to resolve the regional issues at a place other than the negotiating table".

But the sources said that given Trump's threats to ditch the deal reached under President Barack Obama, Tehran had approached the powers about possible talks on its missile program.

The next shooting to take the title of "deadliest in modern USA history" will have to claim the lives of 60 or more people. Carlos Curbelo told ABC News that he hoped to introduce bipartisan legislation to ban bump stocks as soon as Thursday.

The anti-US parliamentary measure provides for a multimillion-dollar boost in spending on Tehran's missile program and IRGC's overseas operations.

"We will use any silly behavior by the Trump administration as an opportunity to advance our defensive and missile programs", Jafari said during a meeting of the IRGC strategic council.

The remarks, carried by Iran's Tasnim news agency, came following reports that the U.S. could blacklist the Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist group as part of a broad new strategy for dealing with the Islamic Republic to be announced by President Donald Trump.

The Qods Force and individuals and entities associated with IRGC are on the list, but the organization as a whole is not.

The warning comes as US President Trump is expected to announce his new Iran policy in the coming days.

During a meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly last month, Iranian diplomats told the US and others that "it could discuss the missile program to remove concerns", an Iranian source with knowledge of the meeting told Reuters.
