President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday Iran will not give in to mounting US pressure and called for national cohesion to "bring America to its knees".
The country will be able to minimize the impact of the US decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal if internal disagreements are set aside, the president said in a meeting with administration officials in Tehran, his official website reported.  
The speech came in the wake of growing domestic pressure on Rouhani after days of shop closures and protests against the worsening economic conditions as the threat of renewed US sanctions has further weighed on the local currency, which has sharply weakened in recent months.
  Three Choices
The president said Iran faces three choices in responding to  Donald Trump's hostile stance on the nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
