Guardian Council ratifies bill in support of IRGC

April 24, 2019

TEHRAN – The Guardian Council on Wednesday ratified the double-urgency bill to bolster the status of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in the face of U.S. moves, IRNA reported.

Members of the Guardian Council considered the bill in a meeting on Wednesday and were unanimous in supporting it, the council’s spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodaei said. 

The bill, which contains 14 articles, was approved by the parliament on Tuesday, a week after the United States officially designated the IRGC as a “foreign terrorist organization”.
