Chapter Summary

There is not the least doubt that nuclear technology has been one of the most controversial issues in recent times. The nature of its dual-usage became the epicentre of an ongoing debate where rules were established to encourage its peaceful uses and prohibit its military ones. The assessment of this regime leads to the some conclusions that are discusses in this chapter. Until the political situation in the Middle East is conducive to negotiate the establishment of an Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ), this book concludes that the amendment of the The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) rules should instigate a positive effect on the region. Hence, the dream to live in a region free from nuclear weapons may one day become true and cease from being a mere mirage.

Keywords: NPT; nuclear technology; Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ)
