Trump Advisor Warns of Possible Further Sanctions on Iran

JERUSALEM – United States President Donald Trump’s national security advisor said on Wednesday that the White House was studying possible new economic sanctions against Iran, during a press conference in Jerusalem.

John Bolton claimed that economic sanctions on Iran that were re-imposed by the US earlier this month had been a success, while also denying that Washington was seeking to oust the current government in Tehran.

“By bringing the hammer down again of re-imposing American sanctions, we have seen a profound negative effect on Iran,” Bolton said, asserting that sanctions had also swayed “popular opinion inside Iran” against Iran’s government.

“We’re not just going to stop at where the sanctions were in 2015,” he explained.

Bolton added that the US was considering further sanctions as well as unspecified other actions, but asserted that “Regime change in Iran is not American policy.”

“What we want is massive change in the regime’s behavior,” he said.

Regarding a forthcoming US-proposed Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, Bolton said there was no scheduled date for its presentation, and claimed the US would not try to impose an agreement on any party.
