ABSTRACT
The article discusses the apprehensions caused in the Middle East region due to Iran's nuclear enrichment program. It is noted that Iran's refusal to put its nuclear power development under international supervision is giving impetus to a nuclear power race. Various plans of different Middle Eastern countries to construct their nuclear power plants as a cover from Iran are also presented. According to the author, this has created an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear in the region.
