The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s chief commander says the US and other big powers are today on the back foot in the region after suffering several defeats there, referring to the failure of the sanctions regime against the Islamic Republic as a case in point.

Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks on Monday at Martyrs Cemetery in the city of Kerman, the burial place of Iran’s legendary anti-terror commander General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated by the US in early 2020.

Salami enumerated the United States’ policy failures in Asia, among them its recent humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan, two decades after Washington and its allies invaded the country to eliminate the Taliban.

“These days, we are witnessing that the US is retreating and possibly spending its last months in Iraq. We are witnessing its failures in the dangerous Lebanon project and in its objectives on the Syria front. We also see the defeat of the enemy’s goals and activities in the sanctions it has imposed against Iran and its political and economic siege,” the IRGC chief commander said.
