Iran Steps Up Broadsides Against Us Syria Signals Iran Wont Leave


LONDON – Iran on Wednesday launched a fresh barrage of criticism at U.S. demands for sweeping change in its foreign policy and nuclear programme, and Tehran’s ally Damascus flatly dismissed a U.S. call for a withdrawal of Iranian forces from Syria.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said the U.S. government would be defeated like Iraq’s deposed leader Saddam Hussein if it attacked Iran, Iranian state TV reported.

France, one of several European powers dismayed by the U.S. withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear accord, said Washington’s method of adding more sanctions on Tehran would reinforce the country’s dominant hardliners.
