In July 2015, Iran reached an Iran nuclear agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
In May 2018, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, and subsequently restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran.
Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of certain provisions of the Iran nuclear agreement, but promised that the measures taken are "reversible."
The parties involved in the Iranian nuclear agreement began to hold talks in Vienna in April this year to discuss the issue of the United States and Iran resuming the implementation of the agreement.
Due to serious differences between the United States and Iran and the change of leadership of the Iranian government, the talks were suspended after six rounds.
