The United States and Europe reportedly want the UN Security Council (UNSC) sanctions on Iran to be automatically reversible, meaning that if Iran violates the deal at any point, the UNSC sanctions will automatically be re-imposed on Tehran.

China also reportedly shares Russia’s viewpoint and is against the imposition of automatically reversible sanctions on Iran.
