These are the permanent five members of the Security Council. Every country that has signed the NPT ( much much more than only these 5) are "recognized by the NPT" and have to adhere to all of its clauses, given that they have committed to the document.
USA_MANA wrote:If Venezuela is serious about pursuing peaceful nuclear energy, however, it should underline its commitments by adopting an Additional Protocol (AP), joining the Convention on Nuclear Safety, the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage, and the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material. Chile and Peru, which have research reactors, signed these and other treaties and have ratified an AP to their agreements with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"Venezuela does not currently mine its uranium, but recent collaboration with Iran in strategic minerals has sparked rumors that Venezuela could mine uranium for Iran" -->http://www.carnegieendowment.org/publications/index.cfm?fa=view&id=22568
"Under Chávez, Venezuela has supported Iran's right to pursue nuclear technology without constraints and helped extend Iranian interests in Latin America.

Venezuela has also tried to secretly facilitate arms trades between Iran and Latin American countries, which could constitute a violation of UN Security Council resolutions related to Iran's nuclear program
