Nuclear Program of Iran and Perception of West.


Byline: Sajida Begum and Naudir Bakht

Atomic program of Iran was started in the mid-1950s, however it stayed lazy for a few years after the Iranian Islamic insurgency, and it was before long renewed. Repeating Iran's stand in regards to its interest atomic innovation, its administration assured to west about peaceful atomic program.As indicated by the west, the focal issue isn't atomic innovation, yet rather Iran's conduct as a progressive state, with desire that crash into the interests of its neighbors and the West.Nuclearprogram of Iran was propelled in 1953, conflictingly with the assistance of the US as a component of the Atoms for Peace Program. Atomic program of Iran isn't without its problems, because western countries sanctioned on Iran'snuclear program.The study examines the European and Russian position on Iran's atomic desire and additionally the International Atomic Energy Agency's endeavors to reach a compromise that would fulfill the worldwide network's worries and Tehran's demands.

Historical background of Iran's Atomic mission

The historical backdrop of Iran's mission for atomic innovation returns to the mid-1950s. "In 1957, Iran consented to an arrangement with the United States for participation in inquire about on the tranquil employments of atomic vitality. Shortly, Iran set up a Nuclear Research Center at Tehran University and acquired a little research reactor. Iran was among the first countries to sign and ratify the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). However, it was just in the mid-1970s that Iran started to discussion of the need to create atomic power plants to deliver power and to spare its oil and gas saves for modern objectives and fare. At the time, Iran looked to the United States and Europe for required reactors, know-how, and fuel". That time; Iran was a nearby western partner and the Shah's atomic desire did not produce solid uneasiness, in spite of the fact that there was some doubt that he may in the end need to get atomic weapons.

Later on, the primary chief of Iran's nuclear vitality association, Dr. Akbar admired, the Carter organization had built up a few worries about Iran's designs.The first Iranian nuclear power plant was established in 1978 by a German company, the Craftwork Union. Iran also connected "EURODIF". Each of these goals was abandoned after the disturbing war between Iran and Iraq. It was in the mid-1970s that Iran began to talk about the need to build nuclear power plants to keep oil and gas tariffs for mechanical targets and freight under control and set aside. At that time Iran saw the United States and Europe for the reactors, the know-how and the necessary fuels. Because Iran was a Western partner at the time, the Shah's nuclear targets are not very worrying. He rejected the path with which, over time, he might need vulnerability to obtain nuclear weapons.

Later, according to the head of the Iranian affiliate, Dr. Akbar Etemad, the Carter Association developed tension on the Iranian contours and urged the Shah to send it to Washington in 1977 to return it.

(Hunter, 2010)

The Iranian nuclear program changed in 2002 only on a fundamental theme in its relations with the United States and other Western countries. On August 14, 2002, the PMOI stated that it had installed a Natanz nuclear bomb officer and a liberal water reactor at Arak. Change in these working environments does not mean that the NPT has been hurt. It is also logical that the IAEA, and perhaps the information associations of Western countries, including the United States, have studied Iran's exercises.However, the way in which Iran has not officially trained the IAEA in these exercises has led them to obviously think they were suspects. As some reports show, the IAEA Authority has told the writers that it would be great if we had already been informed of the choice to bring together these work environments. In 2009, according to the report, the Director General of the IAEA saw this and several signs of Iran's joint efforts with the union.

He noted that "Iran has worked together to improve safeguard measures at the FEP [fuel enrichment plant] in Natanz. (Hunter, 2010)

Theoretical frameworks

It is the contention of this volume that no single theory of international relations realist, neorealist (structural realist), or constructivist can fully explain the behavior of states and less so the intricacies of their foreign policies. The realist theory, which emphasizes the pursuit of power as the main motivation behind state behavior, fails to pay adequate attention to ideational and institutional factors, such as the role of key agents' identities and interests in determining state behavior. The constructivists emphasize the role of ideas and the identities and interests of purposive actors, which they claim are shaped by shared ideas, in deciding state behavior. However, the constructivists' overemphasis on ideational dynamics behind state behavior tends to ignore the fact that often ideas are used to serve purposes determined by power calculations. In short, both theories tend to ignore the close relationship between power and idea dynamics in state behavior.

Furthermore, the structure of international system as argued by the New realists specially the facts that even today international system is characterized by a lack of an efficient mechanism to prevent conflict, settle disputes, and ensure peace and, hence, is in a state of anarchy, clearly affects states' behavior. It also sets certain boundaries for state behavior, overstepping of which often involves costs, especially to less powerful states. This means that in pursuance of their ambitions and goals, whether determined by power considerations or ideas, states have to consider structural factors. This also means that, in analyzing states external behavior, structural factors should be taken into account. (Waltz, 1979)

Iran's Nuclear Program and Sanctions

So, it is actualityassessed that "lifting sanctions against the country could reduce the world price of crude petroleum by 10%". "This reduction would salt away the US approximately $80 billion per annum. Besides, the American companies that are functioning abroad will get much benefit by the opening of Iranian market foreign investment. While those who are against this deal assert that if the sanctions are raised up, the situation might permit Iran to build up nuclear weapons, which could cause oil prices to double (Demas, 2013). The US has its interests - Iran is a profitable market. Iranians require a lot of infrastructure for rebuilding that could produce billions of dollars for US and UK oil companies"...
