Iranian officials and media have reacted with glee to the resignation of Brian Hook as the United States’ Special representative for Iran and have angrily greeted the arrival of his successor Elliot Abrams.
The special envoy’s departure was also widely discussed in the Iranian media and social media, with some commenting that while Trump’s anti-Iran team was losing some of its fiercest members, everyone in Iran had stayed put. The reference was also about the earlier departure of John Bolton.
The spokesperson for Iran’s Foreign Ministry who usually speaks for the regime rather than the Foreign Ministry, said in a tweet that as far as the Islamic Republic is concerned, there is “no difference between John Bolton, Brian Hook, or Elliot Abrams when it comes to the United States’ Iran policy.”
Mousavi added in the harshly worded tweet: “American officials have been bitten off more than they could chew. Same applies to Mike Pompeo, Donald Trump and their successors.”
At the end of the tweet, Mousavi added the hashtag “bankrupt US policy.”
