Nuclear negotiations in Vienna
The first of the agreement, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (KOEP) on Iran’s nuclear activities, was signed in 2015 between the 5 permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (England, USA, China, France, Russia) and Germany and Iran.
Economic sanctions against Iran were reinstated after former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew his country from the agreement in 2018. Thereupon, the Tehran administration gradually returned to its nuclear activities.
Discussions on the implementation of the KOEP resumed last year in Vienna, the Austrian capital.
EU High Representative for Foreign Relations and Security Policy Josep Borrell announced on 11 March that the negotiations in Vienna had been halted due to “external factors”.
