Jordan remains one of the new comer countries in nuclear projects, Jordan Research and Training Reactor Is considered the first nuclear facility in Jordan.
The security of nuclear facilities has been one of the challenges facing the Jordanian nuclear project as Jordan is a stable country located in a volatile area (Middle East.)
