Iran commented on Bolton

The resignation of John Bolton, adviser to the American president of national security, testifies to the failure of US policy to exert pressure on Tehran, said Advisor to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani - Hesamaddin Ashna.

"The marginalization and, ultimately, Bolton’s resignation is not just a case, but an indisputable indicator of the failure of the US strategy to exert maximum pressure against the constructive maximum resistance of Iran," the Iranian president’s adviser wrote on Twitter.

U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier that he asked his National Security Advisor, John Bolton, to resign due to disagreements with him. He said he plans to announce next week who will replace Bolton in this post. In turn, Bolton said that he himself had proposed his resignation to the American leader.
