US will be isolated if it rejects Iran deal: UN envoy

Samantha Powers, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, on July 29, 2015, warns the US will be isolated on the world stage if Congress rejects the Iran nuclear dealThe United States will be isolated on the world stage and its influence diminished if Congress rejects the Iran nuclear deal, the US ambassador to the United Nations has warned. In an editorial published by Politico, Samantha Power argued that a “no” vote from Congress would make it more difficult for the United States to drum up support for sanctions and partner with like-minded countries to confront crises. “If the United States rejects this deal, we would instantly isolate ourselves from countries that spent nearly two years working with American negotiators to hammer out its toughest provisions,” Power wrote in a piece posted late Wednesday.
