    Changes in US administration have no effect on Iran’s policies: SNSC secretary

The secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) referred to the recent dismissal of John Bolton, stressing that the changing of officials at the White House doesn’t have an effect on the perception of Iran about the hostile US intentions.

Iran Press/Iran news: The secretary of the SNSC Admiral Ali Shamkhani said on Wednesday that the historic and deep-rooted hostility of the US government against the Iranian nation is far beyond the role of some officials, adding, “both administrations of Barack Obama and Donald Trump were seemingly different but when it came to dealing with the Iranian nation, those governments pursued a similar strategy of sanctioning.”

“Iran’s criterion to evaluate the US’ real policy and actions is based on their obedience to international obligations and the removal of unfair and illegal sanctions against the Iranian people,” noted Shamkhani.

He further described the former US National Security Adviser, John Bolton as a salaried and a loyal agent of the terrorist group Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO) in the White House, saying, “the promise he made based on his stupidity and the illusion that the Islamic Revolution would not reach the age of forty will be recorded in the political career of the US government and himself as a sign of blind bigotry and foolishness."

Pointing to the simultaneity of the unprecedented development of Iran's regional power and the shooting down of the modern American spy drone in the Persian Gulf with the period of Bolton's continuous threats, the head of SNSC emphasized: “Iran’s recent accomplishments which are a result of active resistance, shows that the US’ hostile approaches can’t affect the interests of the Iranian nation.”

The US President Donald Trump fired John Bolton, his third national security adviser, on Tuesday amid fundamental disagreements over how to handle major foreign policy challenges like Iran, North Korea, and Afghanistan.
