UK Anti-IRGC Move Aims to Please US

A lawmaker said the move by British parliamentarians to propose sanctions on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps over its alleged role in putting down the recent violent protests over economic conditions in Iran is meant to appease the United States, as the UK is leaving the European Union and needs to forge stronger relations with Washington.   “The UK is in the process of exiting the EU, and it is natural that London shows such behaviors against Iran so that it could get closer to the United States,” Qasem Jasemi, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission told ICANA on Monday. Dozens of British MPs from across the House of Commons have backed a motion calling for the Home Secretary to include the IRGC on an official list of proscribed organizations and impose sanctions on its officials, the Telegraph reported on Saturday.  The development came in response to reports that the IRGC had deployed in several provinces to repress anti-government unrest in Iran during a week of protests, which broke out late last month and left more than 20 people dead.
