European Union governments have voted to suspend some sanctions against Iran following the implementation of a nuclear deal which has seen Iran curb its uraniam enrichment. The move by E.U. foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday came after the publication of an IAEA report confirming that Iran had in fact begun shutting down sensitive nuclear work.
