A former Italian foreign minister says the United States cannot afford to isolate Iran as the Middle Eastern country can easily develop its economic ties with the European Union and Russia.

Gianni De Michelis made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Ahani on Wednesday.

De Michelis said the US administration has realized that a unipolar world no longer catches the attention of nations around the globe and Washington needs to cooperate with regional countries.

He added that considering the major changes in the Middle East, the US no longer can afford to ignore Iran and attempt to isolate the country.
