MNA – Iranian Government Spokesman Ali Rabiei has reacted to ousting of US National Security Advisor John Bolton, saying Washington may now better understand the realities of Iran.
“With ousting of its biggest proponent of war & economic terrorism, the White House will have fewer obstacles to understand the realities of Iran,” Rabiei wrote on his Twitter late Tuesday.
“Months ago John Bolton had promised that Iran would not be there in 3 months; we are still standing & he is gone,” Rabiei added, referring to Bolton’s attempts to get President Donald Trump onboard with his bellicose approaches to wage war against Iran and change its political establishment.
US President Donald Trump announced that he had fired his national security advisor, citing strong disagreements over several foreign policy issues.
Bolton, a US foreign policy hawk with close personal and official ties with the terrorist organization Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO), based in Albania, had long favored a regime change in Iran.
