Asked about the prospect of U.S. designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organisation, Secretary Pompeo asserted that "as we think about the effort to push back against Iran, you've seen us now designate militias inside of Iraq. You've seen us designate senior leaders inside of the IRGC. You've seen us designate financial institutions, financial agents engaged in moving illicit money in support of the Huthis, in support of Hamas, in support of Hizbollah. This administration has taken serious efforts across a broad range of threats, a broad range of efforts to Iran to extend its reach". "We'll continue to do that in evaluating whether or not to sanction a particular Iranian entity", Pompeo added.
