Israel Atomic Energy Commission Director General Zeev Snir called for action against Iran and Syrian nuclear sites during the 62nd General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency on Thursday.

"Iran and Syria pose significant proliferation threats to the region, and the world," Snir said. "Syria built an undeclared, secretive military nuclear reactor at Dair Alzour. Such concealment of illicit activities, is a clear violation of the NPT and Syria's safeguards obligations.   The IAEA and the international community should have taken action ten years ago, and must take action now."

Snir also pleaded for strong actions against Iran, "The IAEA must conduct a robust verification of Iran's clandestine activities. The covert Iranian nuclear weapons program is a documented fact."
