Bolton's departure shows failure of U.S. 'maximum pressure' against Iran: Rouhani adviser
DUBAI (Reuters) - An adviser to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that U.S. President Donald Trump’s firing of his national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday pointed to the failure of Washington’s “maximum pressure strategy” against Iran.
“The marginalization and subsequent elimination of Bolton is not an accident but a decisive sign of the failure of the U.S. maximum pressure strategy in the face of the constructive resistance of Iran,” Hesameddin Ashena tweeted.
