UN nuclear inspectors in Damascus Syria Sunday, as Israel warns IAEA that Syria trying to deceive them.
DAMASCUS // UN inspectors were expected to arrive in Syria late today searching for evidence to support US claims that Damascus had a secret nuclear programme.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team is expected to go to the disputed al Kibar site tomorrow, after holding a series of talks with Syrian officials in Damascus tonight.

Israeli warplanes destroyed a building in al Kibar, a remote desert region in north-east Syria, in September. The United States and Israel say the structure was a nuclear reactor that was close to completion, an allegation Syria denies.

Little information about the inspectors’ trip has been made public, either by the UN atomic agency or Syria. Speaking to journalists before departing for Damascus today, Olli Heinonen, the IAEA deputy chief leading the investigation, said he expected the three-day visit would be the first in a series as the IAEA tries to establish facts. He refused to disclose a schedule and did not comment on reports that Syria is refusing access to other sites the team wants to inspect. “What will be waiting there, we will see when we get there,” he said before boarding the plane for Damascus at a Vienna airport.

The IAEA has apparently been allowed to bring ground-penetrating radar, which is essential to examine beneath the concrete foundations of a new building erected on the site of the bombed facility.

US and Israeli intelligence agencies, as well as the international media, have variously linked the purported Syrian reactor with both Iranian and North Korean nuclear programmes, claims dismissed as fabrication by Syria. The Syrians accuse the United States and Israel of forging evidence, including photographs that are purported to show a North Korean-designed plutonium reactor on the al Kibar site.

Rather than report the suspicions of a Syrian nuclear programme to the IAEA, in accordance with international conventions, Israel decided to unilaterally launch an air strike with the apparent support of Washington.

The UN inspectors are beginning their work nine months after the Israeli attack. Such a lengthy delay is bound to hamper the inspection. Mohamed ElBaradei, the IAEA executive director general, said it was “questionable” if anything could now be found. Mr ElBaradei has been highly critical of Israel for staging the attack, and of the United States for failing to promptly share intelligence with the agency. He has urged Syria to be “transparent” with the inspectors, in accordance with its status as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, a convention Israel refuses to sign. Israel is reported to have extensive military and civilian nuclear capabilities, the only state in the region to do so. It refuses to acknowledge or deny such capability.

The IAEA has little formal inspection rights in Syria, which has declared only a rudimentary nuclear programme using a small 27-kilowatt reactor for research and the production of isotopes for medical and agricultural uses.

Among the areas of potential interest to the UN experts at al Kibar are remnants of water pipes leading to the bombed site as well as a nearby pumping plant. These may match specifications of a North Korean reactor design. The inspectors may also try to look for evidence of graphite, which is used as a cooling element in the reactor Washington alleges Damascus was building.

Syria insists it has nothing to hide, rejecting allegations it has sought to cover up what really went on at the bombed site.

“Syria invited the IAEA and will co-operate with it. al Kibar is a military facility ... it is not nuclear,” Bashar Assad, the Syrian president, said.

New just in........

Reports: Damascus, and Pyongyang helped Iran develop its nuclear program.


Energy Agency inspectors and begin an investigation and Syria on a presumed nucular program.

A delegation of experts of the IAEA mission in Syria Sunday 22-6-2008 to investigate the alleged project to build a secret nuclear reactor in the Syrian desert.

The team inspected the building and assures Washington that it had built secret nuclear reactor and help North Korea before they destroy an Israeli raid last September.

The magazine "Der Spiegel" reported yesterday that the German Damascus, and Pyongyang helped Tehran develop its nuclear program to build nuclear site presumably in Syria.

The magazine in its edition for Monday, quoting reports from intelligence agencies German magazine emphasizes possession copies of excerpts from that Syrian President Bashar Assad is thinking now withdrawn its support for Iran's nuclear programme.

According to the source sample, the position of "arrogance" in Syria, which was destroyed by Israeli aircraft supported by Washington, was scheduled to be used for joint military project between Syria and North Korea and Iran, a nuclear reactor for military ends.

According to sources "der Spiegel", was scheduled to help Pyongyang on the progress of Iranian scientists in the nuclear programme by providing additional knowledge. He was scheduled also to be the "arrogance" of the site temporarily Iran develop a nuclear bomb waiting for it to do so on its territory.

The magazine pointed out that this project was discussed during the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Syria in 2006.

She added: "der Spiegel", quoting the same source that the three countries also cooperated in the production of chemical weapons, asserting that it had discovered the corpses of 15 military engineers Syria, 12 Iranian and North Korean 3 among the victims of an explosion in a chemical site in July 2007 near Aleppo in the north Syria.

After ten months for Israel's destruction of the "arrogance" on the basis of allegations that nuclear facility catered Syria assisted North Korea, announced the International Atomic Energy Agency to send experts to Syria to investigate this case.

The Washington provided Atomic Agency in April of documents and photographs to support these allegations, but Syria rejected these allegations, describing them as "ridiculous".

And Syria and Iran were signatories to the NPT, signed at the end of May a memorandum of cooperation in the defence of "independence and territorial integrity."

The alliance between the two countries back to the era of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, has been strengthened in 2006 with the signing a military cooperation agreement between the two countries.
