“Washington should put aside hawkish elements as well as the warmongering and maximum pressure policy,” said the president in a Cabinet meeting.

His comments came after US President Donald Trump dismissed his national security advisor John Bolton, a hawkish element who advocated for harshest anti-Iran policies and even a military invasion.
