Foreign Minister Zarif argued that “Bolton and Netanyahu killed the Paris agreement between the E3 and Iran in 2005 by insisting on zero enrichment. Result? Iran increased its enrichment 100 fold by 2012. Now they've lured President Donald Trump into killing JCPOA with the same delusion”. “The B-Team hasn't learned”, Zarif added, “but the world should”. National Security Advisor John Bolton responded that “my thanks to Foreign Minister Zarif for the kind words. Someday, I’ll explain to him how to end a bad deal”.
