A top IRGC general, Masoud Jazayeri, has advised Republican senator Lindsey Graham against making ill-advised remarks against Iran.
"This American conservative senator should not speak about the strategic affairs related to Iran and the U.S., because his previous advices have been proved inefficient," Jazayeri told the Mehr News Agency in an interview published on Monday.
Graham has said that the U.S. should not be satisfied with stopping Iran's nuclear program but should also destroy its military capabilities and deliver a major blow to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.
"My view of military force would be not to just neutralize their nuclear program, which are probably dispersed and hardened, but to sink their navy, destroy their air force and deliver a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard... in other words, neuter that regime," Press TV quoted Graham as saying at the Halifax International Security Forum on Saturday.
Jazayeri said, "This U.S. senator does not know that the world has changed and many developments have taken place in the international stage.
"This senator imagines that it is possible to govern the world by bullying... but he does not know that the U.S. is currently the hostage of Iran in the region."
On Sunday, Foreign Minster Manouchehr Mottaki dismissed the U.S. senator's remarks as a joke, saying "Don't take his remarks seriously, he might have been joking."
