British Queen celebrates


British lawmakers and members of the upper house of parliament have collectively urged the government to officially designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist

organization. This move is proposed as a measure to contribute to restoring stability in the Middle East.

If the IRGC is proscribed as a terrorist group, it would entail criminal offenses in the UK for individuals to be associated with the organization, attend its meetings, or display its logo publicly. It's worth noting that the IRGC is already under British sanctions.

In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, over 60 lawmakers from the lower house of parliament and members of the House of Lords emphasized the increasing urgency of proscribing the IRGC, particularly in light of ongoing conflicts in the Middle East. The letter, signed by prominent Conservatives such as Iain Duncan Smith, David Davis, and David Jones, contends that taking such action would be a significant step toward fostering peace, stability, and justice in the Middle East and beyond.
