IAEA board to discuss Israel nuclear arsenal
The 35-nations that are members at the board of the International Atomic Energy Agency, have taken the unprecedented step of including a discussion of Israel and its undisclosed nuclear arsenal in its draft agenda for a June 7th meeting.
The IAEA board will scrutinize the nuclear capability of Israel following pressure from countries in the Middle East and around the world. According to the Associated Press, the inclusion of Israel may still be removed from the final agenda if Israel and its Western allies put pressure on the nuclear agency.
According to sources quotd by the Associated Press, the board will decide whether to put pressure on Israel to allow IAEA inspections of their nuclear facilities.
