All signing Middle Eastern States must, within 72 hours of signing, accommodate IAEA inspections. During the first year, all Middle East States must be in accordance with IAEA verification and by the end of the second year any nuclear weapons and/or nuclear weapon grade material discovered shall be removed to the EU3. All Middle Eastern States must comply with full range IAEA inspections. All Non-Proliferation Treaty Nuclear Weapons States will deplete 10% of their nuclear stocks within 5 years of signing.

If any Middle Eastern States are utilizing heavy water reactors, enrichment levels of the uranium produced shall not exceed 1.5%. 4. Inspections of nuclear pursuing sites shall be as follows: (a). Compliance with this treaty assures that the IAEA will be the body in charge of inspections at, but not limited to, nuclear pursuing facilities; centrifuge assembly workshops; uranium mines and mills; and centrifuge rotor production workshops and storage facilities. (b). The IAEA has the capacity to impose inspectors on site with a 72 hour notice, to any declared or suspected site as described above. (c). Any signatory refusing to comply with IAEA regulations will be subjected to sanctions. Article 4: Consequences of Noncompliance 1.
