GENEVA (Reuters) - Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton of plotting for war against Iran in a tweet on Tuesday.
"Wanna know why those with proven record of detesting diplomacy are suddenly interested in talks? Just read @AmbJohnBolton's 2017 recipe for destroying the #JCPOA," Zarif wrote, adding a link to a 2017 article written by Bolton in the National Review. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, is the landmark 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers.
"Iran never left the negotiation table. #B_Team dragged the U.S. out, while plotting for war," Zarif added.
Zarif has in the past said that a "B-team" including Bolton, an ardent Iran hawk, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, could goad Trump into a conflict with Tehran.
