Bolton says U.S. will be aggressive, unwavering on Iran sanctions

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 25 (Reuters) - White House national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday dismissed an EU plan for a special payments plan to circumvent U.S. sanctions against Iranian oil sales, saying the trading bloc was long on rhetoric and short on follow-through.

Speaking at a conference, Bolton also said the United States would be aggressive and unwavering in enforcing economic sanctions on Iran that are resuming after Washington withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. He said the United States would not allow the European Union or anyone else to undermine them. (Reporting by Arshad Mohammed Editing by James Dalgleish)
