AHMADINEJAD’S CLAIM NEVER TO HAVE VIOLATED THE NPT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE
He just said that reports have never documented an Iranian violation of the nonproliferation treaty. This is not true. Changes in inventories of nuclear materials must be reported to the IAEA, and nuclear facilities declared, and the IAEA has documented many violations by Iran of these disclosure obligations. In all cases, the information concealed is critical to a weapons program, and that is what has convinced the Europeans that Iran’s nuclear activities are not for peaceful purposes.
