The Iranian president says the United States has suffered strategic, political and legal defeats while attempting to isolate the Islamic Republic.

President Rouhani underlined that the US has suffered at least three historic defeats over the past months. He said, one of the Washington’s defeats was its failure to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran which is due to expire next month. Rouhani added, another American failure was to persuade the Security Council to bring back international sanctions on the Islamic Republic. He said these failures amounted to major legal and political victories for Iran. The Iranian president stressed that the US is not authorized to use any mechanism stipulated in the Iran nuclear deal since it had unilaterally pulled out of the UN-endorsed accord.
