VIENNA — The International Atomic Energy Agency — the UN nuclear watchdog — said Syria continues to stonewall agency efforts to follow up on US assertions that a facility destroyed three years ago by Israeli warplanes was a secretly built reactor meant to produce plutonium.

"Syria has not cooperated with the agency since June 2008" on most aspects of its investigation.

Diplomats told The AP of a visit to Syria in January by a high-ranking Iranian nuclear delegation led by Mahdi Kaniki, a deputy to Ali Akhbar Salehi, an Iranian deputy president and head of his country's nuclear program.
