"We will continue to increase financial pressure and raise the costs on the Iranian regime for its support of terrorist activity until it abandons its malign and outlaw behavior, ' Trump said".

DUBAI - Thousands of Iranians carrying signs reading "I'm a Guard too" and "Down with USA" marched on Friday to protest against the US designation of the elite Revolutionary Guards as a foreign terrorist organization.

Pompeo told a U.S. Senate committee that he had "no announcements" on waivers, particularly in an unclassified setting.

State media said similar demonstrations took place in other Iranian cities and towns on Friday.

The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif shared a video footage of the 2016 USA presidential elections on his Twitter page in which the U.S. incumbent president Donald Trump confessed to Iran's role in destroying the ISIL terrorist group. Washington had previously sanctioned many entities and individuals linked with IRGC but had not formally designated it as a terror group.

"There are measures which, if taken by the Americans.who said they will remain without response?"

Baeidinejad said blacklisting the IRGC was only rhetorical and that he did not believe that Washington would ever instruct United States forces to really confront the IRGC and treat it as a terrorist force. "If you're the general counsel of an Asian bank or a European bank, your world changed when that designation came out yesterday", he said. Iranian Supreme National Security Council, in retaliation, has recognized the US Central Command (CENCTOM) as a terrorist organization.
