ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the interest of several countries to develop nuclear power. These countries include Egypt, Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) states (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates), and Turkey. However, these plans of several countries to develop nuclear programs have been described as peaceful in nature and focused on electricity production. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that, launching a nuclear power program is a major task that requires careful planning and preparation. IAEA is the one who supports and regulates nuclear power operations around the world. Details on the attempts of developing nuclear power, as well as the nuclear activities and facilities of countries including Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are also offered.
