When one tells me a sentence and then asks me "isn't it?" and I want to answer that I agree with him. Then what's the correct answer?

Yes, it is.

or

No, it is.

Because if I say "yes" to the question "Isn't it" it may be understood that I agree it is not. For example: A: "Isn't it?" B: yes. Meaning I don't agree, it says I think it's indeed not true. As an English learner I found it very confusing.

You answer the "isn't it?" tag question, following a statement, with "yes, it is" if you agree with the statement, or "no, it isn't" if you do not agree, or possibly "I don't know" if you aren't sure.
