The broad outlines of United States foreign policy are unlikely to change following the abrupt departure of John Bolton, the third national security adviser to leave the White House post in nearly three years, analysts and officials said.

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he had fired Bolton amid "strong" disagreement with the man he tapped 17 months ago to replace H.R. McMaster, who was brought in after Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was ousted after less than one month in office.

"I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House," the president tweeted. "I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service."
