The EU's relations with Iran

Implementation Day of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was reached on January 16. This means that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has verified that Iran has implemented its nuclear related commitments, and that the UN, EU and US will lift their nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions. This important milestone marks a fundamental shift in Iran's nuclear programme.

Since the JCPOA was concluded in July 2015, all sides have been working towards its full and timely implementation. Adoption Day was declared on 18 October 2015, respecting the timeline set out in the agreement and in United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231. The work carried out to reach these important milestones has been coordinated by the European Union, in the framework of the E3/EU+3 group and Iran, and in close cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
