By SOP newswire3

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today congratulated the team of international negotiators and Iran on achieving a political framework that paves the way for an historic comprehensive joint plan of action on Iran`s nuclear programme to be achieved by 30 June.

That comprehensive agreement will provide for substantial limits on Iran`s nuclear programme and for the removal of all sanctions, " said Mr. Ban in a statement released by his spokesperson, following the announcement that Iran and the Foreign Ministers of the so-called "E3+3` (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States), had reached a deal.

It will respect Iran`s needs and rights while providing assurances to the international community that its nuclear activities will remain exclusively peaceful, " Mr. Ban`s statement continued.

The statement added that the Secretary-General is convinced that a comprehensive, negotiated solution to the Iranian nuclear issue will contribute to peace and stability in the region and enable all countries to cooperate urgently to deal with the many serious security challenges they face.
