Avoid warmongers, Iran warns the US after sacking of security adviser Bolton
The President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani has warned the United State of America to avoid warmongers, following the sacking of hardline national security adviser John Bolton.
Rouhani who issued the warning on Wednesday said Bolton was one of the strongest advocates of the ongoing US “maximum pressure” policy towards the Islamic Republic.
“Americans have to realise that warmongering and warmongers are not to their benefit,” President Hassan Rouhani said in televised remarks. “They should not only abandon warmongering but also abandon their maximum pressure policy.

“Iran’s policy of resistance will not change as long as our enemy continues to put pressure on Iran.”
Iranian presidential adviser Hesameddin Ashena also hailed the firing of Bolton as a “clear sign of the defeat of America’s maximum pressure strategy” against Tehran.
Reports say the sacking of Bolton has now raised the possibility of talks between the two arch-rivals after more than a year of escalating tensions.
