IAEA claims lack credibility, rely on CIA imagery and analysis

SYRIA- Syria’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Ambassador Bashar al-Ja’afari on Wednesday refuted claims by the head of the U.N. nuclear agency that a building destroyed by Israeli warplanes in the Syrian desert in 2007 “was very likely the covert site of a nuclear reactor.”

Al-Ja’afari told the U.N. General Assembly that most findings of the International Atomic Energy Agency under the current director-general, Yukiya Amano, relied on imagery and analysis presented by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.

He said this made Syria question the credibility of the information and corroborating documents since the United States “pursues a political agenda inimical to the interests of my country.”

Bashar al-Ja’afari said Amano’s information lacked credibility and ran counter to previous IAEA assessments.

He said Amano’s predecessor as IAEA chief, Mohamed El-Baradei, had not reached a definitive conclusion about the bombed site, and he asked why the U.S. refused to provide the IAEA with satellite photos of the bombed area for six weeks after the Israeli attack.

Al-Ja’afari said that Syria was the sponsor of a U.N. Security Council resolution, which was never put to a vote, calling for the Middle East to be a zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.

He accused Western states of continuing to supply Israel with nuclear technology, materials and their means of delivery and criticized Amano for not raising Israel’s nuclear program in his report. Israel has never admitted possessing nuclear weapons, pursuing an official policy of ambiguity.
