They have not violated anything. It never said anywhere in NPT that they had to reveal all state secrets.
According to reports published in Russia, apparently based on information developed by the Russian Federal Security Service, Parchin, 30 kilometers south-west of Tehran, is the site for the implementation of a variety of defense projects. Parchin is the center of the Defense Industries Organization (DIO) is chemical industry (production of explosives, fuel, etc.), and, possibly, the home of the main producers of the OGHAB and NAZEAT missiles
A small arms and ammunition plant at Parchin has been in operation since before the Second World War, although very little solid information is available about the post-Revolutionary Iranian arms industry. On 25 August 1999 Iran�s Defense Ministry opened a new chemical factory capable of producing previously imported explosives. The new factory, with a production capacity of two tons per day, opened in the presence of Defense Minister Vice-Admiral Ali Shamkhani in the Parchin Chemical Complex.
The IAEA was given access to Parchin on 1 November 2005, and took environmental samples: inspectors did not observe any unusual activities in the buildings visited, and the results of the analysis of environmental samples did not indicate the presence of nuclear material
Iran is building a high security uranium enrichment facility using gas centrifuges near Natanz. This site is about 40 kilometers southeast of Kashan and about 150 kilometers north of Isfahan. The IAEA has characterized the centrifuges at this site as sophisticated and the culmination of a large, expensive effort.
Iran has demonstrated a capability possessed by only about ten countries. Because of the characteristics of gas centrifuges, the Iranian facility could be used for the production of low enriched uranium for civil purposes or highly enriched uranium for nuclear weapons, depending on the decision of the Iranian government.
Because of the nature of this site, a large military strike would be necessary to destroy these undergound buildings. Other information about Iran's centrifuge program suggests that even if the Natanz site was destroyed militarily, Iran's decentralized gas centrifuge program could not be bombed out of existence, meaning that Iran could relative rapidly build a small gas centrifuge facility that would be extremely difficult to detect

By the way did I mention that they dont have a nuclear weapon and that they dont develop any and that therefore this whole thread is disinformation, producing hatred and fear. The OP is a government shill with an evil agenda.

You'd think if Iran wanted to start a genocide against Jews that it would first kill the 25 thousand plus that live in their own borders right?

Such citations are worthless and show how worthless the UN and IAEA are, when they can't apply the same rules to Israel.
Inspect Israel first and foremost, or see the IAEA be considered what it really is----worthless toward the major and real nuclear proliferations problems in Israel. imho

How did those poor hostages feel?
Can any of us ever know?
You know who might be able to tell you though?
Think of some poor Arab who was labeled a terrorist by one of his angry neighbors and 'sold' to the Americans and has now spent four or five years in Guantanamo Bay. Betcha they could tell ya.
Evil evil Iranians
