Iran urges Canadian MPs to study IRGC's status in Iran

Nasser Kanaani, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that the decision made by the House of Commons of Canada to label the official Iranian military as a terrorist group is an unwise and hostile move.
Iran urges Canadian MPs to study IRGC

Canadian MPs voted on Wednesday unanimously in support of the motion following a justice committee report that called on the government to classify the IRGC as a "terrorist" entity.

Kanaani stated that the action taken by Canadian Parliament members is irresponsible and marks a continuation of the wrong path that they have been taking over the past decade. This path has been influenced by the Zionist regime and in coordination with some groups that are rejected and without status or value. 
Kanaani suggested that Canadian parliamentarians study the position of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran to gain a better understanding of the situation.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has previously confirmed that his government is looking "for ways to responsibly list the IRGC as a terrorist organization."
In a statement, Tehran also condemned a motion by Canada's House of Commons to place the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) on an official list of "terrorist" organizations, deeming it an aggression against Iran's sovereignty and national security.
In a statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the step is unwise and hostile and contradicts the standards and principles of international law, including equality among sovereign states and non-interference in the internal affairs of governments.
The Ministry considered that the motion was part of the wrong path taken by members of the Canadian Parliament over the past decade under the influence of the Israeli occupation entity.
Iran reserves its right to respond and take appropriate countermeasures against such acts that violate international law and are directed against the Iranian people and government, it added.
