WORLD BRIEFING / SYRIA

IAEA chief repels bid to block aid

November 25, 2008|Times Wire Reports

The International Atomic Energy Agency chief clashed with some Western nations who wanted to block aid for a planned Syrian nuclear power plant, saying intelligence pointing to a secret effort to produce plutonium was unproven.

Mohamed ElBaradei said Syria was innocent until proved guilty. China, Russia and other nations rejected the Western challenge as political interference.
