UN nuclear agency approves Syria aid

The UN nuclear agency has approved technical aid for Syria despite suspicions that the country had a secret atomic program that could be used to make weapons.

 

The decision appeared to be a defeat for the US and its allies. They called for rejection of the package meant to help Syria set up a power-producing reactor. Western critics expressed their concerns about the deal in the text that approved it after three days of deadlock. (Reuters)
