IAEA divided on atomic risks from potential US airstrike in Syria

The head of the United Nations’ nuclear energy watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Monday that his agency was divided about nuclear risks from a potential US airstrike in Syria.

Yukiya Amano said that US and Cuban representatives disagreed about such risks, but their exact opinions could not be revealed because they spoke at a private meeting of the agency’s board of governors.

On Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry urged the IAEA secretariat to evaluate nuclear risks of a US strike on the miniature neutron source reactor near Damascus and other nuclear facilities in Syria.
