The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian Nuclear Issue was adopted in July 2015 in Vienna by the Heads of Foreign Ministries of USA, Russia, China, Great Britain, France, Germany, and Iran. The document was developed to find a comprehensive and final solution to this issue.  

In May 2018, the USA declared the withdrawal from the Treaty and announced to resume unilateral sanctions against Iran. 

In February and April 2013, the city of Almaty held two rounds of talks on the Iranian nuclear programme.
