In Israel, Bolton Warns Iran


U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton warned Iran not to test the United States' strength during a visit to Israel on Sunday.

Appearing with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Bolton said, "Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake US prudence and discretion for weakness. No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East."

"As we meet, threats to international peace and security in the Middle East and around the world are on the rise,” he asserted.

"Iran’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons; its threats to exceed the limits set in the failed nuclear deal in the coming days; its continuing buildup of menacing Quds Force capabilities in Syria and Iraq; its supply of sophisticated drones, missiles and other advanced weapons to hostile surrogate forces in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Afghanistan; and continued threat and acts of aggression against Israel, our allies in the Arabian Gulf and against US personal and assets across the Middle East, are not signs of a nation seeking peace," Bolton observed.

Bolton then pledged that the U.S. would never allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.
