Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will determine whether Iran's policies change, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Friday, downplaying the importance of presidential elections taking place in the Islamic Republic.

Speaking at the Washington Institute while on a US visit that saw him meet with his US counterpart Chuck Hagel, Ya'alon said, "Regarding the question whether Iran's policy will change, that depends on Khamenei and not on who is elected. We have to wait and see what the policy will be following elections."
