Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday warned against the repercussions of a possible move by the United States to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group.

The IRGC is popular not only in Iran but also among regional countries, Rouhani said, adding that the IRGC has protected Iraq’s capital Baghdad and Syria’s Damascus against the terrorist groups.

The IRGC is also popular among the Iraq’s Kurds, because it has saved Erbil, and among the Lebanese people because it has saved their honor against the invaders.

According to the reports, the U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization in the coming days.
