US-Iran: John Bolton warns Iran of ‘hell to pay’ if crossed

71

US National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned Iran’s rulers that there will be “hell to pay” if they harm the US, its citizens or allies.

His comments came hours after President Donald Trump accused Iran of sowing “chaos, death and destruction” across the Middle East.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani responded by criticising the Trump administration for its hostility.

The US recently imposed sanctions after leaving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
