Iran is also a signatory of the NNP treaty, and therefore has the right to pursue nuclear enrichment programs that produce uranium purity of less than 20%.
From my understanding there is only one nation on the planet that refuses IAEA and UN inspections and hasnt signed the NNP treaty
Do you know who that nation is?
I suggest that you research into the list of US corporation and state bodies that will not trade with Vietnam (even though everybody else in the world does)

UN Nuclear Regulator Says Iran Denies Request to Visit Key Military Base - BloombergOfficials from the International Atomic Energy Agency, sent to Iran to defuse tensions over the country’s nuclear program, were denied access to a military base and said the talks “couldn’t finalize a way forward.”
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11709428The IAEA has long expressed concern about Iran's nuclear programme, but its latest report (November 2011) lays out the case in much greater detail than before.
Drawing on evidence provided by more than 10 member states as well as its own information, the IAEA said Iran had carried out activities "relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device".
It said that some of these activities could only be used to develop nuclear weapons - though it did not say that Iran had mastered the process, nor how long it would take Iran to make a bomb.
The report documents alleged Iranian testing of explosives, experiments on detonating a nuclear weapon, and work on weaponisation - the processes by which a device might be adapted and hardened to fit into the nose-section of a missile.
There are some allegations that are listed openly for the first time, including the claim that Iran has used computer modelling on the behaviour of a nuclear device.

What happened was, US corporations lobbied the US COngress to back off on trade sanctions, because they were losing market share to other nations and corporations (including Australian and Chinese corporations and joint ventures)
There are still some US sanctions still in place with regards to Vietnam
Cuban sanctions are illegal from any angle
