The chapter analyses the nuclear condition of the Middle East and the strategic ramifications of increased nuclear activity by local powers. Its primary focus is on the prospects of nuclear weapons proliferation and the impact of Iranian nuclear behaviour since 2002. The concomitant efforts across the region to develop nuclear civilian energy are also scrutinised and explained.
