In the beginning of new century, Iran’s nuclear issue became a hot topic for international debates. IAEA and UNSC moved forward and played their part to stop Iran from further uranium enrichment. In spite of massive external pressure, economic sanctions and diplomatic breakup Iran kept its stance. On economic, political and security reasons; it pursued its nuclear technology.
