Iran would resume enrichment if nuclear talks fail: minister

ROME (Reuters) - Failure to reach a deal on Iran's nuclear program would force Tehran to resume uranium enrichment activities, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying on Thursday.

Speaking at a conference in Rome, Araqchi said he believed it was possible for Iran to reach an accord with world powers in time for a July 20 deadline, with drafting of final proposals due to begin next week.
