Officials from Iran and the five remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal are set to come together in Vienna on Wednesday to hold the first meeting of the Joint Commission since the establishment of Europe’s trade vehicle known as INSTEX (Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges). 
The nuclear agreement, officially named the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was signed between Iran and six major powers, but the United States unilaterally pulled out of the deal last year and restored its harsh measures on Tehran. 
The remaining signatories, namely Russia, China, France, Britain, Germany and the European Union, have regularly held sessions of the Joint Commission that oversees JCPOA's implementation and addresses any problem or dispute.
