Against this backdrop of increasing focus on the possible proliferation of WMDs, Turkey’s own policies in the area of nonproliferation as a NATO member, as a neighbor of Iran, and as a country located in a region prone to proliferation, started to generate interest. Indeed what role could be ascribed to nonproliferation concerns in Turkish foreign policy?

This paper is divided into four sections. The first section provides an overview of Turkey’s approach to nonproliferation. The second section focuses on nuclear issues of concern to Ankara. The third section analyzes Turkey’s approach to the Iranian nuclear crisis on the basis of these findings. The last section concludes by assessing the role of nonproliferation concerns in Turkish foreign policy.
