The article focuses on the move of some countries to pursue nuclear energy after international efforts to stop Iran's uranium enrichment has remained unsuccessful. Jordan signed a nuclear cooperation deal with Japan, while the Gulf Cooperation Council completed one of the studies needed for their plans to develop nuclear energy. The Middle Eastern countries who are moving forward with plans to develop nuclear programs all insist, just as Iran does, that their sole aim is to produce nuclear energy, not nuclear weapons.
