UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Iran to play a "constructive role" in regional and international affairs Saturday after Hassan Rowhani was elected president.

Ban "intends to remain engaged with the Iranian authorities and with the president-elect on issues of importance to the international community and the welfare of the Iranian people," his office said in a message congratulating Rowhani on his win.
