The Iran nuclear deal is an international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program reached in 2015 between Iran, the United States, China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, Germany, and European Union. The agreement stipulates Iran will eliminate its stockpile of medium-enriched uranium, cut its stockpile of low-enriched uranium by 98 percent, and reduce by about two-thirds the number of its gas centrifuges for 13 years. In return for verifiably abiding by its commitments, Iran will receive relief from the United States, European Union, and United Nations Security Council nuclear-related economic sanctions. The Iran nuclear deal is an international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program reached in 2015 between Iran, the United States, China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, Germany, and European Union.
