The possibility that Iran will acquire a nuclear weapons capability poses a significant threat to the stability of the Middle East and a potential challenge to the long-term viability of the nuclear non-proliferation regime. Since 2003, diplomatic efforts by the EU-3 (United Kingdom, France and Germany) have succeeded in suspending the sensitive aspects of Irana€™s nuclear programme, but prospects for reaching a permanent agreement with the Iranian government are uncertain. If the EU-3 effort collapses, a number of policy options will be given more serious consideration, including sanctions, containment, regime change and military action. This IISS a€˜Strategic Dossiera€™ on Irana€™s strategic weapons programmes provides an objective technical assessment of Irana€™s nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons capabilities, as well as its ballistic missile programme. The dossier evaluates what is known and what is not known about these capabilities and projects potential future developments. In addition, the dossier provides a history of democratic efforts over the last three decades, to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability and examines different options for current diplomatic efforts. Each chapter has been written and reviewed by recognised international experts in their respective fields. The IISS does not advocate any particular policy option for dealing with the Iranian nuclear issue. The objective of Irana€™s Strategic Weapons Programmes: A Net Assessment is to assess, as accurately and dispassionately as possible, Irana€™s capabilities and evaluate the pros and cons of different policy options in the order to foster a well-informed policy debate.Iran may have embarked on a programme to remove the doublebase propellant from the FROG7 rocket motor casings and refurbish the rockets by casting a new, simple composite propellant into the casings.
