TEHRAN, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday urged for national unity as a key factor to withstand U.S. sanction pressures on the country, state TV reported.

"It is without doubt that we will get through this historic juncture through unity between the government and the people," Rouhani was quoted as saying.

Iran's "enemies" will cease pressures once they lose hope in their ambitions, he said. "Unity, endeavor and resistance will make the enemy hopeless."

U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 international Iranian nuclear accord last year and his administration kept imposing sanctions on Iran.
