The Iranian Resistance, commonly known as the PMOI/MEK, have warned that agreeing to the Mullah’s request to remove the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRCG) from the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list will “heighten terrorism and mayhem” across the Middle East.
There are growing concerns that the Biden administration is weighing such a move during the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna focusing on the regime’s controversial nuclear program and reaching a weaker 2022 version of the already highly flawed 2015 nuclear deal, wrote the MEK’s US-based lobbying arm the National Council for Resistance in Iran.
“A potential IRGC exclusion from the FTO list and taking these individuals off the terror blacklist, as requested by Iran’s ruling theocracy, will no doubt heighten terrorism and mayhem in the region,” the NCRI U.S. Office report released Thursday said.
“The IRGC’s involvement in research & development of weapons of mass destruction, ceaseless terrorist activities to foment mayhem, destruction, and instability across the Middle East, its financial empire to fund its nefarious activities inside Iran and abroad, make this terror outfit a serious global threat,” the report adds.
“The continued offers of concessions by Western countries and lack of accountability for the regime’s terrorism, have emboldened Tehran to step up its terrorism in the region,” said Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the NCRI’s Washington office, to Fox News’ Adam Shaw with the release of the report.
“Instead of holding the regime accountable for its stepped-up terrorism, the West would be rewarding terrorism, leading to even more violence,” he highlighted, arguing instead that in fact, more sanctions are necessary due to the regime’s ongoing terrorist campaign across the Middle East.
“Among other issues, we are highly concerned about reports indicating the potential lifting of the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and of the sanctions placed on members of the office of the Supreme Leader,” the letter reads.
