CONTEXT: NON PROLIFERATION AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Non-proliferation-related sanctions were first levelled against Iran by the United
States in 1992. Sanctions adopted by the UN and the EU followed from 2006 onwards,
after the IAEA referred the Iranian nuclear programme to the UN Security Council.
While Iran has also become the target of sanctions triggered by allegations of human
rights abuses, supporting terrorism and others, only non-proliferation-related
sanctions are affected by the JCPOA.
