DUBAI - Iran's supreme leader urged his country's politicians to show more unity as he warned the West that sanctions imposed over Tehran's disputed nuclear program would only make the government more determined to pursue it, Iranian media reported.

The sanctions imposed against Iran since the beginning of this year have taken an enormous toll on its economy, which suffers from a weaker currency, rampant inflation and high unemployment.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is unelected and holds ultimate authority over Iran's foreign policy and nuclear program, told Iranian officials not to bicker publicly.

Conservative rivals of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in parliament have increasingly criticized his handling of the economy and for not preventing sharp rises in food prices.
