Foreign Minister Eli Cohen, meeting with the EU envoy to Israel, calls on the European Union to label the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

According to a statement from Cohen’s office, he met with EU Ambassador to Israel Dimiter Tzantchev in Jerusalem and “emphasized that only a sweeping move” against Tehran would “send a clear message to the terrorist regime in Iran.”

Earlier this week, the EU decided not to move forward with a plan to add the Guard Corps to the EU’s terror group blacklist.
