Volume 12, Issue 39, Pages 75-121
AbstractIn the ten years since the end of the Second World War, nuclear technology has spread to many parts of the world. Since a peaceful nuclear program can provide the means for a military nuclear program in multiple ways, it is clear that the rapid proliferation of nuclear technology will bring with it the proliferation of capability on the production of nuclear weapons.
Because of the enormous destructive power of these weapons, they contribute to the strengthening of the national security of the occupying power against any external aggression. The possession of such weapons is a deterrent to any state contemplating aggression against a nuclear-weapon state capable of using it to defend itself. That the state possessing nuclear weapons enjoys political power at the level of international relations, which allows it to establish balanced international relations based on mutual respect with other countries, which can be inferred from the differences of the treatment of some major powers such as the United States with the nuclear file of North Korea on the one hand, and the Iranian nuclear program on the other hand, where it depends negotiations with North Korea showing the possession of nuclear weapons while based used threats and intimidation with Iran, which has not found to possess nuclear weapons yet.
