Bolton: Sanctions will bring Iran to negotiating table

United States National Security Advisor John Bolton said on Tuesday he believes sanctions and pressure on Iran will bring the country to the negotiating table.

Speaking in Jerusalem, Bolton warned that "the threat of a nuclear Iran is very real" and described the Islamic Republic as a "source of belligerence and aggression." However, President Donald Trump "has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiably eliminate Iran’s nuclear weapons program," he underlined. "All that Iran needs to do is to walk through that open door," Bolton concluded at the trilateral meeting with his Russian and Israeli counterparts.

Following the latest batch of US sanctions against Tehran, which target Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei among others, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the measures represent a "permanent" end to negotiations.
