VIENNA — A 151-nation meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency narrowly voted against an Arab push to censure Israel for not opening up its nuclear activities to inspection.

Of nations present, 51 voted against a resolution called "Israeli Nuclear Capabilities." Fifty-one voted for, and 23 abstained. The rest were absent.

The vote was closely watched after last year's meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency passed the same resolution by a small margin.

The US and other allies of Israel had argued passage would threaten ongoing Mideast peace talks and the chances of a planned 2012 conference on a Mideast nuclear-free zone. Islamic nations and their supporters said the resolution was meant to move chances of creating such a zone forward.
