It is the longstanding policy of successive British Governments not to comment on intelligence matters. We have long been clear about our concerns over the malign activity of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The UK has designated almost 300 Iranian entities and individuals including in relation to human rights, nuclear proliferation and terrorism. This includes the designation of the IRGC in its entirety. The UK is committed to working with the international community to ensure Iran abides by international laws and norms and is held to account for its destabilising activity.
