Do not assist, encourage, or induce" a non-nuclear weapon state (NNWS) to acquire nuclear weapons (Article I)
"obligation to pursue in good faith and bring to a conclusion negotiations leading to nuclear disarmament in all its aspects"
Peaceful use of nuclear energy
Allows NWS to transfer technology to other signatory countries in order to develop civilian nuclear weapon programs as long as they can demonstrate that their nuclear programs are not being used for the development of nuclear weapons.
Primary complication of the treaty comes from overlap of potential commercial and military uses as the operation of certain nuclear facilities creates material that could easily be converted to a nuclear weapon as a by product giving countries "virtual nuclear weapons programs"
IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)
Agree to apply the safeguards to all nuclear activity.
IAEA - Crisis of 2011 regarding North Korea and Iran
