Iran's IRGC vows to speed up missile program amid fresh sanctions

19 Octobre 2017

Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Thursday announced that it would press on with plans to boost its regional clout and boost Iran's missile power, a local media report said.

In a major US policy shift, President Donald Trump last Friday refused to certify Tehran's compliance with a landmark 2015 nuclear deal, signaling he would take a more aggressive approach to Iran over its ballistic missile program.

In a statement, the IRGC stressed the Guards' resolve to defend the Iranian nation's security and emphasized that it will not waver in its resolve to stand against the global hegemonic system.

But the report said malnutrition, which can leave children more vulnerable to severe diseases, played a role in half the deaths.

The statement has stressed that the IRGC, backed by popular support and under the command of the Leader, has worked in tandem with other branches of the Armed Forces to safeguard the Revolution and the country.

The IRGC will keep trying to enhance its regional influence and boost Iran's missile capabilities with more acceleration, it added.
