Iran President Hassan Rouhani calls for unity to face 'unprecedented' US pressure
Updated : May 12, 2019 02:03 PM IST
US President Donald Trump on Thursday urged Iran's leaders talk with him about giving up their nuclear program and said he could not rule out a military confrontation.
Hardliners have criticized Rouhani after Trump withdrew from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which Rouhani supported, and reimposed sanctions last year. The pragmatic president has also been abandoned by some of his moderate allies.
Iran has dismissed the US military build up as 'psychological warfare' designed to intimidate it.
