A senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says economic plots against Iran are hatched to cause social unrest and chaos in the country and force it to reach compromise with hegemonic powers.
According to Press TV, Brigadier General Yadollah Javani said on Monday that Iran’s enemies seek to create unrest and endanger national security in the country through economic plots.
The IRGC commander also stated that the Iranian nation has successfully passed through military, cultural, scientific and soft wars imposed on it over the past 34 years.
Javani added “Today, Iran faces an economic war imposed on it by its enemies.”
The United States and the European Union have imposed illegal unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic over the false allegation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iran refutes the allegation and argues that as a signatory to Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
