Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei instructed those in charge Friday to take "decisive" measures to meet people's economic demands and help thwart enemy plots aimed at mounting financial pressure on the masses. 
"Today, the enemies' main aim is to put economic pressure on the  masses in order to sap their energy and undermine their hopes," he said in a speech in Tehran marking Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, his official website reported. 
The Leader called on the people and authorities to remain "united" and "vigilant" in the face of hostile attempts, saying that collective efforts are crucial and necessary to help improve the economy. 
There has been growing discontent among the people over the handling of the economy. Many are anxious about what lies ahead given the prospect of renewed sanctions after US President Donald Trump pulled out of an international Iran nuclear deal in May.
