Experts familiar with Iraq's nuclear-weapons program suspect that the country possesses nuclear missiles. In April of 1992, a group of nuclear-weapons designers from the U.S., Britain, France, and Russia met to assess Iraq's progress with nuclear weapons. They concluded that if Iraq continued with the same strategy and design approach it could have a working nuclear-weapons arsenal in three years. It is not known with certainty whether Iraq was successful.
