Rouhani says US ‘isolated’ on sanctions
July 15, 2018

TEHRAN: The United States is increasingly isolated in its move to reimpose sanctions on Tehran after quitting the international nuclear deal, President Hassan Rouhani said Saturday, vowing to resist American “plots”.

“The path chosen by the Islamic Republic of Iran is perseverance, resistance”, Rouhani said in televised remarks. “Each time that we were able to thwart the plots, the people and the government were side by side.”

Over the objections of allies, Trump in May pulled the United States from the nuclear deal signed between Tehran and world powers in 2015. He re-imposed US sanctions that had been suspended in return for controls on Tehran’s nuclear programme, effectively barring many multinational firms from doing business in Iran.

“The United States is more and more isolated on the subject of sanctions,” said Rouhani. “The illegal logic of the United States is not supported by any of the international organisations.”
