Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, in reaction to the ouster of US security advisor John Bolton by Donald Trump on Tuesday, tweeted, “Thirst for war—maximum pressure—should go with the warmonger-in-chief”.

Immediately after Bolton’s dismissal, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced new sanctions against Iran in a joint press conference.

“As the world—minus 3 or 2 panicked cohorts—was breathing a sigh of relief over ouster of #B_Team’s henchman in the White House, Pompeo & Mnuchin declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism against Iran,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account on Wednesday.
