Ya’alon: Iranian elections will not bring change

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Saturday said the elections in Iran “won’t being any change” to Tehran’s policies, since it is Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei who wields ultimate authority.

In a meeting with his US counterpart, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at his Pentagon office in Washington, Ya’alon stated: “We are very worried by the advances in the Iranian nuclear project, and worried by what we don’t know.”

He added that the international community should be “tougher” with Iran both diplomatically and in terms of sanctions, and “make it clear to them that the military option is on the table.”
