John Bolton, White House National Security Adviser, rejected a proposal from Moscow for a deal between the United States and Russian Federation to limit Iran's presence in Syria.

Bolton said on Thursday that following the USA decision to withdraw from a 2015 global deal aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear programme, the Trump administration's objective was to "put maximum pressure on the regime" by making sanctions "more extensive and more effective".

Addressing journalists the next day in Geneva, Bolton revealed that Patrushev had proposed "a geographic constriction of Iranian forces" in Syria "in exchange for the suspension of United States oil sanctions" on Iran, which are scheduled to take effect in November. One of the consequences of Trump's sanctions against Iran is that those who travel to Iran might face some difficulties afterwards.

Bolton said that the USA would also act militarily in Syria if Assad's regime uses chemical weapons in its offensive to re-take the the last major rebel bastion in the northern province of Idlib.

'Just to be clear, regime change in Iran is not American policy.

At a news conference in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Bolton voiced support for Israeli strikes in recent months on sites in Syria where he said Iranian-supplied missiles and other "threatening weapons" had been deployed.

Tehran, he said, has been acting as a "central bank" for terrorism since 1979, the year that the Shah was toppled and an Islamic Republic founded by Ruhollah Khomeini.

A second tranche of sanctions on Iran's banking and energy sectors, set to be imposed in November, is expected to have an even bigger impact on the country's economy.

Bolton said on Thursday that Putin shared the U.S. goal of getting Iranian forces out of Syria.

Bolton boasted that the sanctions are "already having a significant effect on Iran's economy", but admitted that they have not led to any change in the country's policies.

Israel has pushed Russian Federation to at a minimum keep Iranian forces and their allies, such as Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, far away from the ceasefire line in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

European countries have sought to save the nuclear deal, saying it is working as intended by keeping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons for now. "That would be an objective that I think President Putin would share", Bolton said without elaboration.

Amid a deteriorating outlook between Washington and Tehran, a senior Iranian cleric on Wednesday said the United States and Israel would be targeted if either power attacked Iran.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian operatives targeted the presidential campaign in 2016 with a hacking and social-media disinformation campaign to try to tilt the election in Trump's favor and that they were likely to do so again in the November midterm vote. "And we talked about a variety of ways in which it might be accomplished through a series of steps". So this is not negotiation, but dictatorship. "The Iranian nation would stand up against dictatorship", he was quoted as saying.
