Rather than Iran being the one to be isolated through sanctions, it is Israel, who opposed a deal with the Islamic Republic, who are the isolated ones, according to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. On Tuesday Rouhani stated that the new agreement with the P5+1 countries shows that Israel is becoming isolated. In an interview on Iranian state television, he said that Iran's enemies, are "isolated now than ever before." He clarified that that he was referring to Israel. The Jewish State opposed the deal in a bid to prevent Iran from amassing nuclear weapons.
