TEHERAN, Iran—US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks show Iran is increasingly isolated by neighboring countries that see it as a threat,  an Iranian opposition leader said Sunday.

The statement by Mir Hossein Mousavi blames his rival, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for hard-line policies that put Iran in a "vulnerable situation" in the region.

The leaked American diplomatic messages cite several Gulf Arab leaders, including Saudi's powerful King Abdullah, urging US military action to halt Iran's nuclear program.
