Allgemeine Zeitung: The world is a bit safer after Bolton sacking


The German daily Allgemeine Zeitung comments on the ousting of U.S. national security advisor John Bolton.

In an editorial on Wednesday, the paper writes, in part: "The sacking of Bolton has made the world a bit safer. One must naturally be careful to not try to definitively interpret the actions of the U.S. president, who is known to act in an erratic manner. But there are increasingly indications that Trump will not shy away from any threat or any step on a ladder of escalation - only to seek a deal in the end. And if there is no other way to back down - then please at the expense of somebody else losing face."    (dpa)
