Briefing note on Turkey’s nuclear programme

Τhe development  of Turkey’s nuclear programme generates serious concerns internationally. These concerns are based on certain unusual articles within the nuclear agreements between Turkey and both Russia and Japan, two major nuclear technology suppliers, as well as on the country’s ‘’grey’’ cooperation with Pakistan during the 1980s. The uncertain future of the U.S. tactical nuclear weapons deployed in southeast Turkey further augments international apprehension. Finally, the political and social instability that characterises Turkey and its wider region requires vigilance and sobriety on behalf of all the States which are directly or indirectly affected through the pertinent developments.
