The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a landmark agreement concluded on 14 July 2015 by Iran on one side and, on the other, three European states—France, Germany and the United Kingdom (the E3)—and China, Russia and the United States. The agreement appeared to solve the crisis over Iran’s nuclear programme that had begun in the early 2000s. The JCPOA, which was facilitated by the European Union (EU), was based on a compromise whereby Iran accepted limits and strict monitoring on its proliferation-sensitive activities in return for the lifting of international sanctions on its nuclear programme.1
