Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stressed that the US recent decision to blacklist the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps could not help it revive the terrorist groups in the region.
In a post on his Twitter account on Thursday, Zarif branded the countries that made wars in the Middle East as “losers of our region’s War on Terror.”
“Losers of our region’s War on Terror cannot rescind history. Targeting #IRGC won’t revive ISIS and Nusra—their clients and very creations,” the Iranian minister noted, referring to the US State Department’s recent move to designate the IRGC a terrorist group.
“Game over, ladies and gentlemen: time to face the fact that you’ve exhausted every wrong choice and scapegoating won’t be your panacea,” he added.
Zarif also attached the image of an article to his message, published by the British Independent daily in 2014, which had revealed the role of Saudi Arabia -a close US ally- in the advances that Daesh (ISIL) terrorists had been making in north Iraq.
