Rouhani calls for unity to overcome US ‘economic war’

Agency News

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday called on citizens to unite to overcome an “economic war” waged by the United States.

"We need to unite to fight against and to win this economic war that America has launched against Iran," Rouhani said in a televised speech.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington have heightened since Trump pulled out of a 2015 deal to curb Iranian nuclear development with six world powers and reimposed sanctions on Iran.

Rouhani said on Tuesday there would be no talks with the United States until all sanctions on Tehran were lifted.
