What does Bolton's exit mean for United States policy on Israel and Iran?

Trump might ease Iran sanctions to convinve Rouhani to meet

The resignation of White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, a hawk on Iran, will not lead to talks between Washington and Tehran, Iran said on Wednesday.

Arch-foes Tehran and Washington have been at loggerheads since May a year ago when US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal and began reimposing crippling sanctions.

Rouhani's website quoted him on Wednesday as further urging the United States to "abandon warmongering and its maximum pressure policy" on Iran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, standing alongside Mnuchin in the White House briefing room, said "sure" when asked whether Trump could meet Rouhani later this month on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY.

Ali Rabiei, a government spokesman, said after the meeting that Bolton's dismissal may help the United States have a "less biased" attitude toward Iran.

According to a New York Times report earlier this month, which cited a United States official and Iranian reports, the proposed sum is aimed at salvaging the accord after Trump withdrew from the pact past year and reimposed biting sanctions on Iran, including on its oil sector. Iran has long said talks are impossible unless Washington lifts its sanctions first. At different times, Trump sought to test diplomatic options with each country, but Bolton aggressively resisted the moves, officials said.

Reacting to the move, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif derided the USA for ordering the new sanctions on the country despite Bolton's departure.

Trump has suggested he would be willing to hold talks with Iran to reach a new deal.

What's next: American Conservative Magazine is reporting that US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun, retired Army Col. Douglas MacGregor, US Iran envoy Brian Hook and others are already being floated for the job. But it has also been cold to recent Trump administration overtures, saying it will not enter talks while under USA sanctions.

In response, Iran has in recent months crept past the limits the nuclear deal imposed on uranium enrichment and its uranium stockpile.

On Saturday, Iran began installing advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium at a faster rate, its third step in reducing commitments under the 2015 deal. Bolton's departure from the White House could be seen as improving the odds of such a meeting taking place which traders have evidently viewed as a potential tailwind for crude oil supply - thus dinging the commodity's price. That effort wasn't an explicit condition of U.S. policy until Bolton took the helm of the National Security Council.

The nuclear deal was struck in 2015 between Iran and six major powers - the UN Security Council's permanent members Britain, China, France, Russia and the USA, plus Germany.

"I don't back away from any of it". I thought Bolton was a terrific choice for national security advisor because he saw the world for how it was-not how he wished it would be. I advise the president. "It's up to him (Trump) to make those decisions".

Trump, who tweeted that he "disagreed strongly" with many of Bolton's policy suggestions, reportedly clashed with the veteran of the four presidential administrations over the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan and Syria.
