Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Washington’s traditional allies are distancing themselves from the US. reports that “today, US allies are not siding with it politically and even its traditional allies are keeping their distance and they are proud to do so,” Rouhani said on September 12 during a cabinet meeting in Tehran, ISNA reported.

Once they were for siding with the US, but not anymore, he stressed.

“Today, the US is in the worst global downturn and even international organizations like the UNESCO, UN, IAEA and International Criminal Court are opposed to US policies,” the president said.

Saying that the Iranian nation is grappling with an “unwanted” economic war, Rouhani called on people to remain united and strong in face of plots.

On May 8, the US president pulled his country out of the JCPOA, which was achieved in Vienna in 2015 after years of negotiations among Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).

Following the US exit, Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the accord.

Trump on August 6 signed an executive order re-imposing many sanctions on Iran, three months after pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal.
