Tension between Iran and the international community is increasing with negotiations over Iran's nuclear capability at the heart of a growing diplomatic crisis. With the likely recommdendation that Iran be referred to the UN Security Council for supposed breaches of its nuclear obligations the next few weeks will be crucial in determining the outcomes of this latest confrontation.
The current crisis is the culmination of years of Iranian nuclear development and diplomatic efforts on the part of the EU, the US and the UN. The history of the crisis and its implications for the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty are complex and go to the heart of the future ability of the international community to regulate and monitor nuclear activity.
