Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri said Tuesday that the US administration "only understands swear words," adding that it needs "shocks" to realize "the new meaning of power in the world."
The remark comes after Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Baker said that US' calls to label the Revolutionary Guards a "terrorist group" will mean Washington itself supports terrorists. Chief of the Revolutionary Guards Mohammad Ali Jafari has also vowed to equate US forces with the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS).
US President Donald Trump is reported to be considering designating the Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization. The Washington Post has reported that Trump intended to "decertify" the nuclear deal with Iran next week. According to the newspaper, Trump is expected to deliver a speech on October 12, when he opens the door to modifying the agreement as part of a tougher approach toward Iran.
In July, Washington slapped Tehran with a new round of sanctions, targeting its ballistic missile program. Iran responded to the unilateral US move by increasing the funding of the program.
