Addressing the Assembly of Experts on Wednesday morning, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the main duty of the forces under his command is establishing security and safeguarding the achievements of the Islamic Revolution.
"Given this duty of the Sepah Pasdaran [the IRGC], we must talk of the achievements of the Islamic Revolution. The Islamic Revolution is progressing at a favorable speed, an example of which is the ever-growing export of the Islamic Revolution.
"The export of the Islamic Revolution has opened a new chapter, a representation of which is the recent letter of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution to the youth of Europe and America that, as we see, has been warmly welcomed overseas," Jafari stated.
On January 21, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wrote a letter asking the youth in Europe and North America not to judge Islam based on the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
In his letter, the Leader urged Western youths to try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of the religion in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the IRGC commander underscored the Islamic Revolution's regional clout saying the Lebanese Hezbollah's resistance against "the Zionist regime's army is a miracle worked by the Islamic Revolution and [an indication of] the Islamic establishment's powerful influence" in the region.
"Today, not only Palestine and Lebanon, but also the people of Iraq and Syria acknowledge the Islamic Revolution's influential role," the commander asserted.
Powerful Iran not worried about illogical behaviors by enemy
In an interview with the Tasnim news agency on Wednesday, the IRGC chief also said Iran has become very powerful and therefore has no worry about any "unwise behaviors" by the enemies.
"We have become so powerful that we have no concern about unwise behaviors of the enemy," the top IRGC commander noted.
He added, "If the enemies seek to implement their strategic stupidities against the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic system" Iran take steps toward "their annihilation".
He went on to say that history has proven that Iran is able to defuse military and sanctions threats.
