Iran predicts U.S. isolation on September 26

The September 26 UN Security Council meeting, where U.S. President Donald Trump plans to take up his anti-Iran campaign, will further isolate the U.S., Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said.

"We have been informed that the European members of [the] Security Council all intend to support the nuclear deal and stress the need for remaining committed to its implementation," the minister noted.

"I am confident that Wednesday’s meeting will proceed against Mr. Trump’s wishes, and this will only isolate the US more," Sputnik cited Araghchi as saying.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said at the UN General Assembly session that if the US wants to return to the JCPOA and cooperate, it should know that "it would be much easier to return to six months ago than six years back."

Rouhani noted that Washington is urging other countries to violate the nuclear accord and is threatening all countries and international organizations if they comply with UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which supports the JCPOA.

The US president, in turn, delivered an address to the assembly in which he called upon all countries to isolate the government of Iran and assured that the US would continue to take strong actions until Tehran changes its course.
