Iranian parliamentarians are calling on their government to list Canada’s army and RCMP as “terrorist organizations” in a retaliatory move against Ottawa for its recent decision to label the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist entity.
A group of 250 Iranian legislators introduced a motion on June 23 demanding the designation, Iranian state-owned news network Press TV reported. The broadcaster is owned by Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

The legislators are calling on the Iranian Foreign Ministry to use “all political and international means” to denounce the Canada’s “hostile move” of naming the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a branch of Iran’s Armed Forces, a terrorist organization.
The Iranian legislature called the Canadian government a “staunch supporter” of Israel and said that “blacklisting” the IRGC violates international law.
