India and Iran have a long close historical relation right from the ancient times. Nuclear weapons are an essential part of India’s national security and will remain so, until non-discriminatory and global nuclear disarmament. Iran insists that it only intends to develop its nuclear programme for peaceful purposes, but the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) claims that it has not been able to verify the country’s claims. Iranian nuclear issue came into the international attention in August 2002, when the existence of the Natanz uranium enrichment plant was exposed by an Iranian opposition group. India voted against Iranian Nuclear issue in IAEA which in long run hampered latter’s relation with India. Recently, the signs of nuclear deal with US ended the draconian sanctions on Iran and boosted her confidence to the heights and gave the latter an edge in the region. If Iran continues on its current path, Iran will be a nuclear state within near future and it is very close to be called a power hub of Central Asia due to its energy rich resources, strong military and strategic developments
