Historic agreement with Iran

In the controversy over the Iranian nuclear programme the E3+3 member states have reached an agreement with Iran.

A sigh of relief after 12 years: In the 
controversy over the Iranian nuclear programme the group of nations that 
is known as the E3+3 finally reached agreement with Iran in July. The ob­jective behind the negotiations between the UK, France, and Germany (the E3) and the United States, Russia and China (the +3) with Iran was to ensure that 
the Iranian nuclear programme ex­clusively serves civilian purposes and cannot be used to manufacture nuclear weapons. Iran’s main objective was 
that the existing sanctions imposed 
on it be lifted.
