The crisis regarding Iran's nuclear program opened in late summer 2002 with the declaration by Iran of the existence of a plant for enriching uranium. Iran's nuclear program was launched under the Shah of Iran in the 1950s with the help of the United States and Europe who were soon joined by Russia. This became the subject of political discussion both in Iran and Western countries. The nuclear program of Iran has become political in two respects: domestic and international. Indeed, in this program, there are many views on Iran and the rest of the world. Iran sees nuclear power as a means of diversifying its energy sources and to assert its political role at an international level.

According to Iran, it is essential to develop the nuclear industry because they do not conceive that other countries, like Israel, India and Pakistan possess Atomic Energy outside the framework of the Nuclear Non -Proliferation Treaty (NPT). On the other hand, Western governments believe that Iran's nuclear program has hidden agendas, including the possible introduction of nuclear weapons.

Iran is an Islamic Republic in Western Asia. The country has an area of 1,648,195 square kilometers and a population of nearly 70 million. Gross national product accounts for over $ 570 billion in 2005 and the country is thus the second largest economy in the region. Gross domestic product per capita in Iran amounted to 8400 dollars. Iran is the fourth largest oil producer in the world and the second exporter in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), representing therefore a huge potential for developed countries like the U.S., Europe. It also has the second largest natural gas reserves after Russia, and is the eighth biggest producer.

Its economy is heavily marked by the predominance of oil and gas sector, but also benefits from some agricultural and maritime assets Iran is a country bordering on the north, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, to the west, Turkey and Iraq; and to the east lie Afghanistan and Pakistan. Iran is surrounded by areas of high tension, in which ethnic and linguistic complexities are exposed to ongoing crises and conflicts.

In this conflict, the forces involved are:
? Iran
? The United States
? The European Union (through the EU3: France, UK, Germany)
? The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)
? The Security Council of the UN

The development and possession of nuclear weapons by Iran is perceived as a dangerous threat. Iran's actions are sometimes alarming considering that Iran does not recognize the right of Israel to exist, and even represent a threat because of their support for Hezbollah. Since the election of Ahmadinejad, relations between Iran and Israel have been very strained. On several occasions have the Iranian president expressed his hope that the State of Israel be wiped off the map. Moreover, on 8 December 2005, during a summit between the Islamic countries at Mecca, holy city of Islam, he granted an interview with Iranian Arabic channel "Al Alam" recounting that: "Some European countries insist on saying that during World War II, Hitler burned millions of Jews and put them in concentration camps. Any historian, commentator or scientist questioning that is put in prison or is condemned. ..?
