What are Iran's nuclear ambitions? How will these ambitions affect regional and global security? International suspicion surrounding Iran's nuclear activities was first aroused in the late 1980s, but it was not until the International Atomic Energy agency (IAEA) launched an investigation into the Iranian nuclear program, that it was revealed Iran had enriched uranium and separated plutonium in undeclared facilities in the absence of IAEA safeguards. Iran's failure to acknowledge limitations on nuclear fuel cycle activities, despite both offers of assistance and the threat of sanctions, has alarmed the international community. "Iran's Nuclear Program" analyses the most important issues surrounding Iran's nuclear capability and its potential to develop atomic weapons; the changes and developments in Iran's nuclear program since the 2005 Iranian presidential elections; Israeli foreign policy in relation to Iran; the possible impact of an Iranian nuclear program on the security of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC); and the prospect of military action against Iran.
This is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand Iran's atomic development, a threat that has the ability to destabilize the Gulf and the broader Middle East region.
