Overseas Network, September 11, local time, September 10, U.S. President Trump announced that he had asked National Security Assistant Bolton to resign, and then Boltons minimalist resignation letter came to light. There were different opinions about whether he was fired or voluntarily resigned. But in any case, Iran is happy: the biggest supporter of war and economic pressure has gone.
According to the Russian Satellite News Agency, Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiye commented on Boltons resignation in social media on November: A few months ago, John Bolton vowed that Iran would no longer exist in three months. Were still there, and hes gone.

Rabiye said that with the removal of the largest supporter of war and economic terrorism, the White House will encounter fewer obstacles to understanding the real situation in Iran.
Faced with questions from American journalists on how to evaluate Boltons resignation, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif said that the Iranian Foreign Ministry would not make any statements on the internal affairs of the United States.
A senior U.S. government official told CNN that Boltons hawkish approach to Iran in the past few months has exacerbated Trumps irritation. Earlier this year, Bolton supported the U.S. plan to launch an air strike on Iran in retaliation for the shooting down of an unmanned U.S. reconnaissance aircraft. Trump cancelled the operation at the last minute.
The resignation of hawk Bolton may make it possible for the United States and Iran to return to the negotiating table. On the 9th, just hours before the formal announcement of Boltons dismissal, Trump told reporters at the White House that he was willing to meet with Iranian President Ruhani. He even said that meeting with Ruhani twice may happen and its no problem for me. (Zhang Qi, Overseas Network)
