The Approach of Turkey on the Internationalising Iranian Nuclear Question

Extract



Abstract: Since 2002, the United States (US) claims that the final aim of the nuclear program of Iran is not to meet civilian needs for energy but to produce nuclear weapons in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Nevertheless, Iran has always denied the existence of military aims of its nuclear program but fails to justify why it is unwilling to submit itself totally to international inspections. The crisis around Iran’s nuclear issue is an issue that many regional powers and great powers show interest in. Involved actors such as Turkey are proposing to find a solution through negotiations; nevertheless the specter of a military intervention is also present. That’s why the nuclear issue of Iran is worthy of a closer analysis from the international relations discipline’s perspective.

Keywords: Non-Proliferation Treaty, Nuclear Program of Iran, Sanctions, Diplomacy.
