Iran has urged the international community to support them against the U.S. designation of its Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned on Sunday the U.S move last week calling it illegal.
The U.S. measure will have consequences, warned the Iranian authorities.
The Revolutionary Guards high-ups have repeatedly said that the military bases and the aircraft carriers of the United States in the Middle East and the Gulf region are within the range of Iranian missiles.
Tehran in response to the Washington’s move designated the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) as a terrorist organization.
Tehran also said it would disrupt oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf.
World leaders and foreign ministers must express their standpoint against the unprecedented and dangerous stance taken by the United States.
Iran sent letters to the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the United Nations Security Council to protest against the illegal U.S. measure.
Relations between the two countries got worse when the United States pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.
The United States reimposed sanctions against Iran and blacklisted dozens of entities affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
The sanction by the United States against Iran and halting its oil exports has strangled the Iranian economy.
