Qatar Today - - HOW THE WORLD CHANGED FOREVER IN 2015 -

The Iran Nu­clear Frame­work Deal, sev­eral months in the making, was agreed upon by the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran and the P5+1 plus the Euro­pean Union on April 2 this year. Ac­cord­ing to this frame­work, Iran would re­design, con­vert, and re­duce its nu­clear fa­cil­i­ties, with causes cov­er­ing the coun­try's en­rich­ment, re­pro­cess­ing, mon­i­tor­ing and sanc­tions pro­grammes. The UN's nu­clear watch­dog, the In­ter­na­tional Atomic En­ergy Agency, is com­mit­ted un­der the deal to release a re­port by year-end about the sta­tus of Iran's al­leged weaponiza­tion work. On July 14, the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion, based on the ear­lier agreed upon frame­work, was an­nounced.
