Plan of Action on the Iran’s nuclear programme.
Kazakhstan welcomes the agreement reached on 14 July 2015 in Vienna
between Iran and the six international mediators regarding a joint
action plan on the Iranian nuclear programme.
This is a historic accord which will significantly strengthen regional and
international security. The agreement will contribute to the
normalisation of relations between Iran and the international
community. It will have a positive impact on the economic and social
development of all countries in the region, and will further strengthen
