Bolton warns of ‘hell to pay’ if Iran crosses US & allies as Rouhani dares Trump to return to talks
25 September, 2018
Hours after the US and Iranian leaders took aim at each other at the UN General Assembly, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said at an anti-Iran summit that Tehran will have “hell to pay” if it crosses the US or its allies.
“If you cross us, our allies, or our partners; if you harm our citizens...there will indeed be hell to pay,” Bolton said.
Pompeo responded on stage, saying: "This is the second time I've had someone interrupt a speech on this topic, and I've reminded them all that it would be a wonderful thing if they could protest like that in the country of Iran." The comment was met with applause from the audience.
