Iran’s Early Nuclear Ambitions

Here is an interesting article about the beginning of Iran’s nuclear program. In recent times, this issue has gained a lot of attention, especially from the West. However, a nuclear program in Iran is not a new concept. The Iranians first developed a nuclear program in 1959, under the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Although the United States was opposed to Iran’s development of a nuclear program, they eventually participated with Iran by donating a small reactor to Tehran University. However, after this donation, the Shah began to kick Iran’s nuclear program into full gear. His subsequent actions included searching Iran for uranium mines. Although some European countries were eager to help Iran with this mission, the United States no longer supported it. In 1974, however, the United States again decided to support Iran’s nuclear program, with reservations. This article also discusses Iran’s relationships with France and Germany, and later India, in regards to their nuclear program. It also discusses Ayatollah Khomeini’s coming to power and what this new ruler meant for Iran and their nuclear program. Click the link above to access the full article.
