Two years after the Iran nuclear deal was signed in Geneva, the U.S. Government has certified that Iran remains in compliance with some of the most invasive and rigorous monitoring and verification requirements ever developed for an arms control agreement. Formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the complex agreement was the culmination of negotiations between the United States, Russia, Great Britain, France, China, European Union, and Iran, and details of the agreement as well as prospects for its continued success remain the subject of great international interest. .
The Nuclear Threat Initiative, led by former Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, one of the principal U.S. negotiators of the deal struck in 2015, has compiled a collection of resources and materials to explain the agreement and its progress. In cooperation with the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, NTI also has developed a video update of the Iran deal, as well as a library of information related to Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, NTI has included infographics and resources from the U.S. Department of Energy explaining the unprecedented and intrusive monitoring used to make sure Iran is compliant with the agreement.
