Tehran and the P5+1 group of international negotiators comprising Russia, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Germany agreed on the final text of a comprehensive deal on the Iranian nuclear program, on July 14 in Vienna. According to the deal, Iran has pledged that it will under no circumstances ever “seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons” in exchange for sanctions relief.
Following the signing of the agreement, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Iran should close paths for violations “by the other parties” of the deal, because some of the P5+1 countries “are not trustworthy."
