Russia critical of U.S. plan to blacklist Iran's Revolutionary Guards - Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry takes a critical view of U.S. President Donald Trump’s plans to designate Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist organisation, Russia’s Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday.

Russia’s foreign ministry does not consider Iran’s revolutionary guards as a terrorist organisation, the agency cited the ministry as saying.

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce this week his final decision on how he wants to contain Iran’s regional influence.
