Nuclear Issues in Iran
The conflict began in 2002 when a group revealed secret activity about a construction of a Uranium enrichment plant at Natanz. Iran has not been very honest about their nuclear programmes. They are trying to find ways to build nuclear weapons. They said it is for peaceful purposes.
Presidents of Iran
The current president of Iran is Hassan Rouhani. He became president on August 3, 2013. He succeeded Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad served as president for 8 years from 2005-2013.
On May 1992, Israel first received news about nuclear programs in Iran was building a replica of their Uranium enrichment site. In 2002, in Iran two unknown nuclear facilities were discovered. Iran revealed that it ad purchased special gas from Asia used towards enrich Uranium for production of nuclear weapons.
United States Involvement
The U.S. has made an agreement with Iran that will help resolve this nuclear crisis.
The American Security Project believes that the best solution to the nuclear issue is a diplomatic resolution.
The P5+1 and Iran have worked out an agreement. Iran has slowed down the production of 20% enriched Uranium and diluted most of the 20% enriched Uranium into hexafluoride form.
Impact on North Africa and Southwest Asia
Impact on Rest of the World
Israel has opposed to engage in any contact with Iran from the start. They think we should stop Iran from acquiring any nuclear weapons as they believe it is for military purposes. They agreed to the solution that was formed with the P5+1. They saw no trouble in trying to resolve this situation.
Syria and Iran have had a long history of economic and geostrategic ties. Ever since the Syrian war happened, Iran has been on their side. Which caused tension between their neighbor Lebanon. They think the other agreement is war. Syria believes their side will be much stronger since they have Iran on their side.
Iran and the United States was cut off in 1979 after the hostage crisis. The major dispute between these two countries recently has been about Iran's nuclear issues. Iran claims it is only for peaceful purposes but the U.S. believes it is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. After the election, President Obama decided to contact President Rouhani. The agreement towards Iran's nuclear issue is just the beginning of the trust-building relationship.
I ran and the European Unions relationship is similar to the United States relationship with Iran. The only difference is that the EU has always had economic sanctions against Iran. The EU is Iran's main trading partner. Closer ties would only help boost economic cooperation.
