The approvement is not binding.

Iran has already warned the European Union against the move.

The Iranian interior minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Wednesday that the EU's attempt to put the Iranian IRGC on its terrorist list shows the Europeans' apex of desperation and ignorance, stressing that labeling the Iranian force will not affect its anti-terror campaign.
