Like in most situations involving non-members or primitive societies, the Federation decided what the best course of action for a society was without their input.
Which in this case is the sort of imperialistic bulls@#t the Prime Directive was supposed to put a stop to.
Trek seems to treat the PD as a suggestion more than a hard and fast rule. We hear a lot about it's the highest law a starship Captain must obey, but right and left it gets violated and tossed in the trash for the sake of the story.
Until Star Trek Into Darkness when Kirk actually gets demoted for violating it.
