WASHINGTON, Nov 2 (MENA) - Iran remains the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism, according to a report released on Saturday by the US State Department.

"The regime, often through its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, has spent nearly a billion dollars a year to support terrorist groups that serve as its proxies and promote its malign influence around the region – groups like Hizballah and Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad," the State Department said in its annual release of the “Country Report on Terrorism” for 2018.

"But the Iranian threat is not confined to the Middle East; it’s truly global. In 2018, that threat reached Europe in a big way," read the report.
