Has Iran violated the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty? The answer is “unclear,” says the Congressional Research Service in a newly updated report. “The treaty does not contain a mechanism for determining that a state-party has violated its obligations. Moreover, there does not appear to be a formal procedure for determining such violations.”
The CRS report reviews the specific allegations that Iran’s nuclear activities are in violation of its obligations under the NPT, and examines the legal framework for evaluating such allegations. See Iran’s Nuclear Program: Tehran’s Compliance with International Obligations, September 18, 2012.
