In 2015, the Six (UK, Germany, China, France, Russia, USA) and Iran announced the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan. The agreement provided for the lifting of sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran’s nuclear programme. The deal did not last three years in its original form: in May 2018, the U.S. announced a unilateral withdrawal from it and the restoration of severe sanctions against the Islamic Republic. Iran announced a phased reduction in its obligations under the agreement.
