UN nuclear watchdog turns up heat on Syria and Iran

UN nuclear watchdog turns up heat on Syria and Iran: "By Simon Morgan

VIENNA (AFP) — UN atomic watchdog chief Yukiya Amano turned up the heat on Syria and Iran -- both accused of illicit nuclear activity -- as the body's policy-making board of governors began a meeting in Vienna on Monday.

Tehran and Damascus are both accused of actively blocking the International Atomic Energy Agency's long-running investigations into illegal nuclear activity.

At the end of May, Amano released two new reports in which he said Iran was continuing to stockpile low-enriched uranium, in defiance of multiple UN sanctions, and refusing to answer allegations of possible military dimensions to its contested nuclear programme."
