The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was concluded in & nbsp; 2015 by Iran with & nbsp; “ Group of Six ''; (USA, Russia, China, UK, Germany, France). The plan provided for the phased lifting of economic sanctions from & nbsp; Tehran in & nbsp; exchange for & nbsp; curtailment of its nuclear program and & nbsp; admission of IAEA experts to & nbsp; relevant facilities for & nbsp; control.
