Syria and Iran's nuclear programs are high on the agenda at the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors' meeting in Vienna on monday. The session is expected to cover the situation in the Middle East and deal with budget reports. In a statement the U.N. agency complained that Iran was not providing the necessary assistance to provide credible assurances about the absence of undeclared nuclear material.
They also made similar complaints concerning Syria, saying the Arab Nation had ample time to cooperate with the IAEA but failed to do so. Last week Syria pledged full cooperation with U.N. attempts to probe evidence that it secretly built a reactor that could have been used to make nuclear arms. If Syria fulfills its promise, the move would end three years of stonewalling.
