JERUSALEM (Reuters) - U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton predicted on Tuesday that Washington’s pressure campaign against Iran would lead it to enter negotiations.

“They’ll either get the point or ... we will simply enhance the maximum pressure campaign further,” Bolton told reporters after meeting his Russian and Israeli counteparts in Jerusalem. “It will be, I think, the combination of sanctions and other pressure that does bring Iran to the table.”
