I'm curious as to wether or not Yugoslavia ever attempted to gain Nuclear Weapons capability.
Did they embark on such a R&D endeavour and then halt for Foreign Concessions of some sort?
Or did such a Project seem to costly and never materialise?

It did, like many other countries that had some sort of a nuclear research program. It was most intensive after 1948 and until destalinization. I think Tito ordered all of that to stop in the 60s.
Also the whole thing cost a lot.

Yes, I remember reading a very long and detailed article about the Yugoslav nuclear program somewhere a long time ago. If I remember I'll try posting it here.

No, not at all. Baathism was/is a progressive all-Arab nationalist movement.
