Iran - Q&A from the press briefing (10 Jan. 2023)

Published: Wed Jan 11 2023

What is France's position on the possible designation of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group?

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its Quds Force have already been the target of several European sanctions since 2010 due to their involvement in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

In addition, last October the EU imposed sanctions on a number of IRGC leaders for their role in the brutal crackdown against protesters in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini.

France is committed to preventing impunity for those responsible for the crackdown in Iran. As this crackdown is still ongoing, France is working with its European partners on new sanctions measures, without ruling anything out ahead of time.
