NYT: Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Defines Iran Policy

52

The Iranian Foreign Ministry plays a minor role in the foreign policy of the state, which is mainly determined by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The American edition of The New York Times writes about this with reference to statements by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.


The American publication refers to the recording of a conversation between Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif and economist Said Leylaz, in which they discuss, among other things, the political life of Iran. According to this entry, Zarif in the conversation walked away from the official line of Tehran and said about disagreements with the IRGC, and more specifically, that the foreign policy of the state is determined by the guards of the revolution, and not the Iranian Foreign Ministry.

He spoke about his attitude towards General Qasem Soleimani, who was killed by the Americans, who often undermined the efforts of the Iranian Foreign Ministry by pursuing his own policies. This applied to both the nuclear deal and the war in Syria. According to Zarif, in Iran, the military determined the entire policy of the country, placing military interests above the interests of diplomacy.

The record with the "revelations" of the Iranian Foreign Minister appeared in March, and confirmed the information that the Iranian Foreign Minister does not have freedom of action and his possibilities are limited. It is not yet known how this will affect Zarifa himself, but in Iran itself there are already proposals to dismiss Zarifa for revealing the peculiarities of the internal policy of the state. Moreover, in Iran itself, not everything is going smoothly now after two murders and accidents in the field of nuclear technology.

The opinion is expressed that Zarif's political career may end there, since other countries will not want to negotiate with a person who "does not decide anything."

    Iranian Foreign Ministry plays a minor role in the foreign policy of the state, which is mainly determined by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)

    In general, the IRGC does not define anything. From the word at all. The head of Iran is the Supreme Mufti. The executive, legislative and judicial powers are subordinate to him. He is also the commander-in-chief of the Ksir. And he determines the policy of Iran, at least some, at least external, at least internal mufti. So .... What the nafig difference through whom the chief priest of Iran rules foreign policy? Through the Foreign Ministry accountable to him, or through the same Ksir accountable to him?

        This is a generally dark story. To begin with, this is not a leak, but a multi-hour interview given by Zarif Said Leylaz, who is a journalist, not an economist. The interview got into the Iranian media, from there to the BBC Persian Service, and the NYT reprinted it. Did Zarif knowingly give such an interview? I think yes. It is very similar to an excuse: they say we are with every fiber of our soul for a deal with the United States, but the bad IRGC is in the way. "East is a delicate matter" (C)

          "generally a dark story" agrees. There is no internal unity in Iran and, in fact, there is a quarrel over the future course of Iran.
          On the one hand, there are the mules, the IRGC and the aged Ayatol. On the other hand, secular power. If the ayatola is supported by priests, Islamic radicals.
          The president ? Fig knows how devoted he is to the ayatol.
          Remember when the IRGC shot down a Ukrainian airliner? Then the arrests began among the leaders of the IRGC - a signal that the ayatola is not omnipotent.
          Perhaps the Iranian situation inside has worsened and now who is grabbing whom?

          By the way, the Mossad is an intelligence service such as the SVR. Comparison with the IRGC is incorrect. In Israel, there is no analogue of the IRGC, since the political system in Israel is multi-party.

    Israeli agent Zarif drowns all the way for the restoration of ties between Iran and the United States by refusing the former from developing its nuclear missile potential and the consent of the latter to lifting the sanctions.

    The Israeli agent Zarif in the audio recording brazenly accused Russia of allegedly hindering Iran's friendship with the United States - in the image and likeness of Shah Reza Pahlavi, obviously.

      By the way, China, Russia and Iran are now very friendly with Syria and the trade turnover is growing between these countries. But Iran is a profitable and adequate ally. It seems to me that Venezuela will rise in living standards over time. Restored the former prosperity of the times of Chavez. Which is what I wish them.

    The IRGC is a unique unit that handles political, religious and military affairs.
    At one time, the Yankes and Co. also argued that the policy of the USSR was determined by the KGB.
    Interestingly, the KGB was taken out of the Cabinet of Ministers and subordinated to the Central Committee of the CPSU.
    Truth, they say, lies in the middle. Influence is exerted, but not determined.
