Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday, decried Washington’s decision to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terror organisation as he helped unveil some of 114 new achievements in nuclear technology in Tehran.

"You thought that if you speak against the IRGC, divisions would arise or you could reduce its popularity, but from today, the IRGC’s popularity with Iranians and in the region will increase," said Rouhani who was speaking on the occasion of the 13th anniversary of the National Day of Nuclear Technology.

Rouhani also criticised US’s lack of accountability on the international level, adding that Washington’s mistakes would only endanger the interests of US citizens "for a bunch of Zionists."
