Earthquake-prone Iran least concerned about nuclear hazard.
The recent tsunami in Japan led to a nuclear reactor fallout, the worst of its kind since the Chernobyl Disaster which took place several years ago. Radioactive damage to the living environment including human beings has all the trappings of a man-made catastrophe in addition to the natural mayhem.
Iran, which too has had its fair share of earthquakes, is interested in nuclear research and development for peaceful purposes. Were an earthquake to occur near the fault lines in the country, it could trigger a major nuclear disaster similar to the Japanese experience.
The Iranians have continued with their nuclear program despite UN sanctions. The western nations, however, have been apprehensive as they fear that Iran will be capable of making a nuclear bomb in time.
