Iran says US thirst for war should go away with Bolton’s departure

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif criticized the United States on Wednesday for imposing new sanctions on his country despite the departure of US national security adviser John Bolton, whom he described as “the greatest advocate of war.”

“While the world was … breathing a sigh of relief to overthrow the B team man in the White House, (Washington) announced more economic terrorism (sanctions) against Tehran,” Zarif wrote on Twitter.

“Thirst for war and extreme pressures should be gone with the absence of the greatest warlord (Bolton),” he said.

Zarif has consistently said that Team B, which includes Bolton, could push the US president into a conflict with Tehran.
