The diplomatic crisis around Iran has been caused by the Islamic Republic’s strive to develop, test, own and most probably use weapons of mass destruction (WMD), especially nuclear ones in a possible war with either Israel or the West. Since Israel is also rumored to have nuclear weapons and other WMD, Iran claims to counter Israel’s power by its development programme. Most nations, however, don’t view Iran’s nuclear ambitions as beneficial. They fear, that a dictatorial regime ike Iran with very little self-reflection might irresponsibly use the weapons in a possible conflict with its counterparts in the Middle East as the region is known for constant wars and instability. It is also a fact that Iran’s army is mostly composed of obsolete technology and conscripts which is in stark difference with the western supported armies of other states in the Middle East. Therefore it must be determined by the UN how to ensure that Iran does not pose a threat to the regional peace but also how to possibly compensate the Islamic Republic for the loss of protection which the development and ownership of nuclear weapons undeniably provides.
