The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal, implemented in October 2015.
- “Under the nuclear deal that we, our allies, and partners reached with Iran last year, Iran will not get its hands on a nuclear bomb. The region, the United States, and the world will be more secure,” Obama said in January 2016. “As I have said many times, the nuclear deal was never intended to resolve all of our differences with Iran. But still, engaging directly with the Iranian government on a sustained basis, for the first time in decades, has created a unique opportunity — a window — to try to resolve important issues. “
- President Donald Trump disagreed with the policy and unilaterally pulled the United States out of the deal in 2018, which restored nuclear sanctions against Iran, including its supreme leader.
