Iran and the group called P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) reached a final deal - also called the Joint Plan of Action or JCPOA - on Iran 's nuclear program July 14.
The deal will help keep Iran's nuclear program under close inspection and in return it will remove economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
