Netanyahu sees U.S. stays 'very, very tough' on Iran despite Bolton ouster

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu played down the impact of hawkish John Bolton's exit from the post of US national security adviser, predicting on Wednesday that Washington would hold to a tough line on Iran.
US President Donald Trump fired Bolton on Tuesday, citing policy disagreements. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said immediately after that Trump might meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the U.N. general assembly this month.
Netanyahu was among the most vocal champions of Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers and has voiced misgivings about Western engagement with Tehran unless this leads to sweeping restrictions on sensitive nuclear projects.
