The Iran Deal

On Thursday 2 April 2015, Federica Mogherini, the European Union's High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran's Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced that Iran and the "P5+1" (United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China, facilitated by the European Union) reached an understanding on the elements to proceed with negotiating control of Iran's nuclear capacity.

What is called the "Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action" explains,
These elements form the foundation upon which the final text of the JCPOA will be written between now and June 30, and reflect the significant progress that has been made in discussions between the P5+1, the European Union, and Iran.

President Barack Obama appeared in the White House Rose Garden on the evening of 2 April 2015 to discuss the agreement.
