Seyed Ali Khamenei, leader of Iran's Islamic revolution, said in a TV and radio speech made to mark the new year of Iran on Mar 20 that the US' sanctions enabled the Iranian people to attain self-sufficiency in all aspects, calling on all the people to maintain unity.

That day, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said though the US schemed to bring Iran to its knees by dint of the harshest-ever sanctions in history, the Iranian people stubbornly resisted them and that the US' sanctions and pressure were doomed to failure.
