Enemy plots against Iran doomed to failure: Commander

Senior Iranian commander says all enemy plots against the Iranian nation are doomed to failure.

The enemy is seeking to strike a blow to Iran but it will suffer a heavy defeat, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, IRNA reported.

He underlined that the economic war is the enemy's only way to pressure Iran but it will not achieve a success and it will only strengthen the Islamic Republic.

The commander described the US as a declining power.

The US President Donald Trump announced early May that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions which had been lifted under the accord.

The first round of the sanctions snapped back into place in August, with the second round which will aim the energy and oil sector taking effect on November 5.

This is while other signatories to the deal (i.e. Britain, France, Germany, China,
and Russia) have thus far criticized Washington's unilateral move and have repeatedly stressed their commitment to the deal.
