The 2015 nuclear deal struck between Iran and six world powers – the US, UK, Russia, France, China, and Germany – was the signature foreign policy achievement of Barack Obama’s presidency. The initial framework lifted crippling economic sanctions on Iran in return for limitations to the country’s controversial nuclear energy programme, which international powers feared Iran would use to create a nuclear weapon. But Mr Obama’s close association with the deal put it in the crosshairs of his successor, Donald Trump, who has claimed that the deal was too lenient and that Iran has broken parts of the agreement
