    Lightbulb landmark

    Hello everyone

    Does landmark simply mean important in this context? What other words could the writer use instead, please?

    Reports that the US government is poised to designate the IRGC as a terrorist group have sparked jitters in Tehran, overshadowing Donald Trumpís expected plan to tear up the landmark nuclear deal.

    It means a milestone or an event of special significance.
