Iran: Israel isolated after Geneva deal

Posted:

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says Israel has become isolated after his country and world powers reached a historical deal on Tehran's nuclear program.

In a Tuesday interview with state TV marking his first 100 days in office, Rouhani said that some countries had tried to isolate Iran but instead, "Now, our enemies are isolated."

He did not refer to Israel by name, but used language -- "an illegitimate, occupier regime" -- commonly used to describe the country, Iran's arch-enemy.

Israel has repeatedly criticized the deal and called it a "historic mistake."

The six-month bargain includes greater access for U.N. inspectors to Iran and a cap on the level of uranium enrichment.

Rouhani now faces the task of selling the deal to skeptics and hard-liners.
