TEHRAN (AA): Iranian president Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday dismissed the calls by demonstrators for resignation of some ministers amid country’s worsening economic situation.

On Monday and Tuesday, Merchants in Tehran staged demonstrations to protest worsening economic conditions and rising cost of living.

“If we stay united and be prudent, we will overcome all the problems we have,” Rouhani said.

“We have to show the world that we will fight against difficulties without compromising our freedom and independence,” he added.

Iran continues to face a host of serious economic challenges, including high unemployment and a weakening currency, due to longstanding U.S. sanctions.
