'Iran will defend nuclear policy with rigor after election'

ALMATY - Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili said on Thursday the Islamic Republic would defend its right to enrich uranium with "more rigor" after its presidential election in June.
Jalili, speaking in the Kazakh city of Almaty where talks between Iran and world powers are due to start on Friday, said the success of the negotiations depended on whether the powers accepted Tehran's right to a nuclear program.
"The impact of the election will be that ... our people will defend its right with more rigor," he said in a speech at an Almaty university.
