Iran's Zarif says US 'thirst for war' should go with Bolton

News Service Reuters

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif slammed the United States on Wednesday for ordering new sanctions on Iran despite the departure of "warmonger-in-chief", U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton.

"As the world ... was breathing a sigh of relief over ouster of #B_Team's henchman in the White House, (Washington) declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism (sanctions) against Iran," Zarif tweeted. "Thirst for war —maximum pressure— should go with the warmonger-in-chief (Bolton)."

Zarif has often said that a so-called "B-team" including Bolton could goad the U.S. president into a conflict with Tehran.
