According to German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, the European Union and Germany are debating whether to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist group.
“I made it clear last week that we will launch another package of sanctions, that we will examine how we can also list the Revolutionary Guards Corps as a terrorist organization,” Baerbock said in a interview with ARD broadcaster on Sunday.
Her remarks follow the head of the Revolutionary Guards’ warning that Saturday would be the last day for demonstrators to take to the streets, signaling that security forces may step up their already ruthless crackdown on widespread dissent.
Germany said last week that it was imposing additional entry restrictions on Iran in addition to the penalties already imposed by the EU.
Additionally, according to Baebock, there are no ongoing conversations regarding the nuclear agreement between Iran and the West.
