Iran’s parliament calls CIA, US army ‘terrorist organizations’

Iran’s parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution to label the CIA and the US army “terrorist organizations”. The move is seen as a diplomatic tit-for-tat after the US senate voted in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

 

“The aggressor US army and the Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror,” said a statement by the 215 lawmakers who signed the resolution at an open session of the Iranian parliament. The session was broadcast live on state-run radio. (AP)
