Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA): Iran and P5+1

Iran, the P5+1 and the European Union (EU) have adopted a joint statement for the removal of UNSC resolutions and sanctions against the Islamic Republic in exchange of greatly limiting Iran’s uranium-enrichment programme. The framework agreement is called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA  is intended to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. The P5+1 include all the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council., ie US, UK, France, China and Russia plus Germany.

Key Points of the Nuclear Agreement:-

1- Iran is permitted to keep its nuclear facilities, which it insists are for civilian uses only, but they would be subject to strict production limits.

2- Iran will use the facility to enrich uranium only at Natanz.

3- Iran should reduce the number of centrifuges by two-thirds to 5,060.(centrifuges are used to enrich uranium)

4- Iran has agreed to redesign a heavy-water reactor at Arak in a way that would keep it from producing plutonium, a weapons-usable fuel.

5- Iran should implement the Additional Protocol of the IAEA, providing greater access and information regarding its nuclear programme.

6- Iran will not enrich uranium over 3.67 percent for at least 15 years. 

Iran's aspect:-

 1- The sanctions imposed by the US, the EU and the UN will be lifted in phases depending upon the progress made by Iran in implementing its commitments under the agreement.

 2- In case of the US the nuclear related sanctions will be lifted once the IAEA verified that Iran has taken all the key nuclear-related steps provided by the agreement. However, sanctions related to terrorism, rights abuses and ballistic missiles will remain in place.
