Iran's need or want for nuclear power is a threat to neighbors in the region, and to the west. In the past months, this issue has been worked on by the international community. It has been reported that a plan has been knocked out, for Iran to work on nuclear power. This plan will implement lifting some sanctions that were in place against Iran because of its behavior in trying to develop nuclear weapons.
