ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the relationship between nuclear power and the spread of nuclear weapons capability. Along with characterization of the benefits of nuclear power, one should also mention the liabilities associated with this energy source. Some analysts argue that the motivation for the acquisition of nuclear weapons is purely political and the spread of nuclear arms can be prevented through political barriers only. However, they ignore the nonpolitical barriers and dismiss a wide range of options which can help in slowing the spread of weapons-relevant technology.
