Statement on the United States Designation of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a Foreign Terrorist Organization   [open pdf - 158KB]

From the Document: "Today I am formally announcing my administration's plan to designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including its Qods Force, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act. This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognizes the reality that Iran is not only a state sponsor of terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft. The IRGC is the Iranian Government's primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign."
