The chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency on Monday said Syria has agreed to let inspectors into the country this month to probe allegations of illegal nuclear activity. IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei said Monday his experts will visit Syria between June 22 and 24.
"It has now been agreed that an (IAEA) team will visit Syria during the period June 22-24," ElBaradei told the agency's 35-member board of governors. "I look forward to Syria's full cooperation in this matter."
According to the AP, the inspectors intend to investigate a site that Israeli warplanes destroyed in September. The U.S. claimed the site held a plutonium-producing reactor that was built secretly and with help from North Korea.
