Description:

This paper looks at Iran's dealings with the UN Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding Iran's nuclear capacity. The paper discusses the sanctions established by the Security Council because international inspectors were unable to certify that there were no undeclared nuclear activities in Iran or that Iran's motives were entirely peaceful. The paper also shows how it is not easy to simply believe that Iran's nuclear program is "entirely peaceful". The paper is of the opnion that until Iran responds to the questions raised by the latest IAEA report, is transparent with inspectors, and provides the necessary documents and interviews with concerned personnel, the Council is wise to authorize such sanctions upon Iran. The paper includes footnotes in place of a bibliography.

From the Paper:

"This issue with Iran's nuclear capacity and the seemingly growing problem within the UN Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) began as early as 2002 when during his State of the Union address, Pres. Bush named Iran as part of the "axis of evil" after a few months following close coordination between Iran and the US against the Taliban in Afghanistan. From then on Iran has managed to increase their capability for uranium-enrichment drawing both protests from the UN Security Council and the ire of the IAEA. Iran categorically stated that their nuclear activities are purely for peaceful purposes like electricity generation and water treatment to name a few. The mere fact that information was discovered that Iran camouflaged its nuclear activities for 18 years was in breach of its duties and obligations as a member under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT)."
