VIENNA - UN inspectors plan to meet Syrian officials next week to try to make progress on a long-stalled investigation into suspected nuclear activities in the Arab state, but Western diplomats played down any hopes of a breakthrough.

Herman Nackaerts, head of nuclear safeguards inspections worldwide at the UN International Atomic Energy Agency, will travel to Damascus on Monday for talks expected to take place the following two days, an IAEA official said.

The official declined to give any details on who Nackaerts, an IAEA deputy director general, was expected to meet and what the discussions would focus on.
