While the bulk of these talks are conducted in a technical language covering a range of detailed and complex issues pertaining to Iran’s nuclear program, there are still some underlying factors that can be discussed and explained in more straightforward terms for the benefit of the general public.
Political analyst and expert on Iran’s nuclear issue, Shirin Shafaie, provides an analysis of the underlying facts behind the issue of nuclear proliferation and non-proliferation in the Middle East. Shafaie identifies three nuclear models in the region and compares them with one another against the background of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). She argues that the subject of nuclear technology is a politicised issue in the Middle East that is overshadowed by a mixture of double standards, hypocrisy and bullying tactics. She warns that there will always be a threat of nuclear proliferation in the region as long as the peaceful use of nuclear energy remains a politicised issue.
