Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guardian Corps speaking in a conference on Saturday said "The demands of the Supreme Leader are so that the IRGC must not restrict itself to the military-defense sphere, because the monopoly system has adopted a new countenance.”
He asserted "The IRGC’s real responsibility is to defend the Islamic Revolution. In fact the IRGC has to look on what platforms threats are formed against the Islamic Revolution so that it may get fully ready to meet them and perform its missions on time and unremissively.”
Pointing out that the IRGC has to be ever-changing and up-to-date, Jafari said "The real threats against the Islamic Revolution are the soft ones in cultural, social, and political arenas, a policy which the Supreme Leader calls the cultural camisado.”
"In soft threats, the main objective is to penetrate the hearts of people, which is mainly done through the press. The IRGC has to prepare itself to meet such threats,” the IRGC commander stated.
