Iran's three-decade old efforts to become a nuclear power have not come to fruition yet. Iran denies allegations that it has ambitions to produce nuclear weapons with the nuclear infrastructure that it has so far acquired, however, its policy of procurement of nuclear and missile technology from China, Russia and North Korea are causes for serious concern for a number of states in the Middle East and in the West. Unless it shelves the controversial nuclear weapons program, which may have no significant military value, Iran will continue wasting money as well as facing strong opposition from the United States.
