Alwaght-Leader of Islamic Rpuplic of Iran Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei has expressed appreciation to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team for sincerity in diligent endeavors and efforts during the course of negotiations with the P5+1.
In a meeting with President Hassan Rouhani and the cabinet in Tehran on Tuesday, the Leader said spiritual and ideological support is the main factor for solution of all problems.
Ayatollah Khamenei also recalled Imam Ali’s (AS) guidelines to Muslim rulers to observe divine virtues under any conditions and circumstances.
President Rouhani, for his part, thanked Ayatollah Khamenei for supporting the Iranian nuclear negotiating team of his administration.
He expressed hope that the nuclear conclusion reached in Vienna would prepare the ground for relieving pressure on Iran and disproving unfounded allegations fabricated by Iran’s enemies, and would also contribute to national progress.
Rouhani said that the expansion of close ties with neighboring countries and the continuation of nuclear negotiations were among his administration’s achievements in foreign policy.
“Under circumstances where the [Middle East] region is engulfed by chaos and terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran supports regional countries which are grappling with the scourge of terrorism and will continue on this path,” he said.
Speaking in a televised address on Tuesday after the conclusion of talks between Iran and the P5+1, Rouhani said Iran managed to achieve all four objectives it was seeking throughout intensive nuclear talks with the six powers.
We were following four objectives in these negotiations. As part of today's agreement and under this Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, all the four objectives have been achieved," Rouhani said.
He enumerated the objectives as Iran's ability to go ahead with its nuclear activities, lifting of "cruel and inhumane sanctions," annulment of all "illegal" sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council against Iran and the withdrawal of Iran's nuclear dossier from the Security Council.
Meanwhile World leaders have welcomed a "historic" conclusion reached following days of intensive nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in Vienna.
“I warmly welcome the historic agreement in Vienna today and congratulate the P5+1 and Iran for reaching this agreement,” the UN chief, Ban Ki-moon, said in a statement on Tuesday.
“This is testament to the value of dialogue,” Ban added.
He expressed the UN’s readiness to fully cooperate with the negotiating parties in the process of “implementing this historic and important agreement."
The UN chief also said the nuclear conclusion could help improve peace in the Middle East.
I hope -- and indeed believe -- that this agreement will lead to greater mutual understanding and cooperation on the many serious security challenges in the Middle East," Ban said.
"As such, it could serve as a vital contribution to peace and stability both in the region and beyond," he added
Russian President Vladimir Putin also commended the conclusion of talks between Iran and the six world powers on Tehran’s nuclear program, saying the nuclear negotiating parties made a “firm choice for stability and cooperation.”
"Despite attempts to argue in favor of scenarios of force, the participants of the talks made a firm choice for stability and cooperation," Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin's website.
He added that after the sides’ negotiations succeeded in reaching a conclusion, “the world has breathed a huge sigh of relief.”
The Russian president said his country would "do everything in its power" to ensure that the conclusion would work.
"We expect that all of the interested parties, primarily the 5+1 countries, will fully adhere to the decisions that have been reached," Putin said.
Under the deal , in which P5+1 has recognize Iran’s civilian nuclear program, including the country’s right to the complete nuclear cycle, sanctions imposed by the US, European Union and United Nations would be lifted at once under a mutually agreed framework and through a new UN resolution.
Iran, for its part, has agreed on some curbs on its nuclear.
