Nonproliferation Treaty Enhancement Resolution of 2005 - Reaffirms congressional support for the objectives of the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and expresses support for appropriate measures to strengthen the NPT.

Calls on all parties participating in the Seventh Review Conference on the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons to make good faith efforts to: (1) establish more effective controls on critical technologies that can be used to produce nuclear weapons material; (2) ensure universal adoption of the Additional Protocol to the NPT and support the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) authority to monitor nonproliferation compliance; (3) use diplomacy and economic leverage to halt uranium enrichment and other nuclear fuel cycle activities in Iran, and verifiably dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons capacity; (4) accelerate programs to eliminate nuclear weapons and to safeguard nuclear weapons-grade fissile materials; (5) establish procedures to ensure that a state cannot retain access to controlled nuclear materials, equipment, technology, and components acquired for peaceful purposes or avoid United Nations (UN) sanctions for violations of the NPT by withdrawing from the NPT; and (6) implement the NPT-related disarmament obligations.

Affirms congressional support for the Proliferation Security Initiative, and urges additional nations to join the Initiative.
