Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Asoudi, a top commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said the armed forces have started their missions for monitoring and tracking the activities of “rebellions” to suppress any probable “sedition” after the upcoming presidential election scheduled to be held on June, 2013.

“Basij and IRGC are all alarmed about the activities of dissidents and protesters to Islamic Republic. We must cancel out any probable objection against the system. Current condition is more complicated than what we experienced four years ago.” General Mohammad Ali Asoudi said.

He also referred to the direct request of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei from IRGC forces. “We, as Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, must try hard to save the interests of Islamic Republic as Ayatollah Khamenei has urged us to do. According to his guidelines, the special mission of IRGC (in this subject) has been started and it is underway.”

“The policy of the United States government is toppling Islamic Republic as they have planned the plot in six phases. But Iranians are not worried about the threats of U.S. against Islamic Republic.” Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Asoudi concluded.

The eleventh election of the President of Iran is scheduled to be held on 14 June 2013 to elect the seventh President, successor of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is barred from standing for a third term. The elections will take place on the same day as local council elections.
