The Revolutionary Guard took over megaprojects long before the United States message

The Revolutionary Guard took over megaprojects long before the United States message
a captain of the Revolutionary Guard Khatam al-Anbia Construction Base, announced Monday that the conglomerate will complete 40 megaprojects in the current Persian calendar year, which started on March 21, 2018.

General Ebadollah Abdollah's comments came during a meeting in the West Iranian province of Lorestan, where government officials discussed the need for a "resistance economy".

Khatam al-Anbia Construction Base is the revolutionary engineering team's revolutionary engineering unit. According to Abdollahi, the conglomerate will complete major projects this year in the oil and gas industry, water management, rail and road projects, port and mining, oil and gas pipelines and information technology.

Abdollah's comments came the day before the US President announced that the country would withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran and reintroduce the severe sanctions against the Tehran regime.

The comments also prove that the Swedish companies investing in different Iranian sectors are in fact dealing with a terrorist organization like the Revolutionary Guard, not the Iranian private sector, as many Swedish ministers claim.

Since the 2015 nuclear agreement, the Swedish government has prioritized trade in the Iranian regime. This despite warning that Iran's economy is controlled by companies and institutions with direct links to the Revolutionary Guard and the highest spiritual leader, Khamenei.

FFFI has on several occasions called on the government and the UD to end this shameful policy of exclusion and warned that the government's intent to deal with the Iranian regime exposes Swedish companies to huge risks such as future US sanctions.

These warnings prove to be justified now that the United States has decided to reinstate the severe sanctions against Iran's regime.

John Bolton, National Security Adviser to President Trump, announced last night that European companies have six months to discontinue their business with Iran if they do not want to risk sanctions from the United States, reports SvD Enterprise on Wednesday.

"Foreign Minister Margot Wallström (S) and Trade Minister Ann Linde (S) can deplore and condemn US President Donald Trump's message how much they want, but the fact is that it's the irresponsible and shameful Iran policy that has left Swedish companies in the current situation" , said Massud Kiani from FFFI.

"As we have pointed out time and time again, the government and our ministers, Iran under the leadership of the clergy, are not open to trade, as is apparent from the United States message," he added.
