"We'll see what happens", Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the possibility the U.S. would ease up on its "maximum pressure" campaign. "The US would have to agree to the Marcon plan for the $15bn in credit or some other sanctions gesture". Bolton said that he left voluntarily, while Trump and White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham insist that he was sacked.
The fall of Mr. Bolton and rise of Mr. Pompeo could play out quickly when world leaders gather for the annual U.N. General Assembly in NY this month.
But Iran's United Nations representative poured cold water on any talk of a Trump-Rouhani meeting on Wednesday. According to Bloomberg, Trump discussed easing sanctions on Tehran with Bolton the night before his firing, a move that Bolton forcefully disagreed with. You look at so numerous things that are happening.
But merely announcing that Washington will ease its "maximum pressure" campaign may not be enough for Iranians, said Sina Toossi, a senior research analyst at the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), a Washington-based advocacy group. He also reiterated that lifting USA sanctions would bring Tehran back to the negotiating table with world powers, but the post to his official website detailing the call with Macron did not elaborate on what might be up for negotiation. "That can't just be a promise".
Iran denounced the accusations leveled on Monday by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said that the clerical regime operated a previously undisclosed site aimed at developing nuclear weapons but destroyed it after it was detected. Difference of opinion over Iran seems to have been the last straw for Trump.
"It's too late for the UNGA", he said.
"As long as the USA government's economic terrorism and such cruel sanctions are imposed on the Iranian people, there is no room for negotiations", he was quoted as saying by IRNA.

France snaps Team USA’s global win streak
Shenanigans in the press and the revenge factor aside, though, Gobert was clearly the best player on the floor in this contest. Gobert's Utah teammate carried Team USA for the opening 30 minutes, pouring in 29 points, including 12 in the third quarter.
"None of their policies has reflected sincerity in seeking negotiations". So, maximum pressure is a failure in that regard.
Critics say the pressure campaign dangerously brought the two countries to the verge of a military confrontation this summer.
"Bolton's exit may lead to a more realistic, step-by-step approach to North Korean denuclearization, where Bolton's "all or nothing" approach to easing sanctions has produced a deadlock despite three Trump-Kim summits", said Alexander Vershbow, a former US ambassador to Russian Federation and South Korea and a former NATO deputy secretary general.
Rouhani spoke after a Cabinet meeting Wednesday, a day that saw all major newspapers in Iran cover Bolton's departure.
Experts note that the removal of Bolton alone does not necessarily portend an imminent breakthrough in U.S. -Iran relations.
"Iran's commitments to the nuclear deal are proportional to other parties and we will take further steps if necessary", Rouhani said.
