Negotiators from Iran, the United States, the European Union, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and China have signed a final agreement that trades sanctions relief for limits on Iran’s nuclear program.

Experts from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) and the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) are available for comment on a range of aspects pertaining to the deal and its implications.

In addition, in partnership with the Nuclear Threat Initiative, CNS has produced various resources for journalists and broadcasters, including high-resolution b-roll footage, 3D video tours, maps, infographics, and more.
