Israel has rejected an offer to join the UN atomic agency, AFP reported on Tuesday.

Israel's nuclear chief Shaul Chorev responded to a tabled resolution at the forthcoming IAEA conference in Vienna for Israel to sign up to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, saying:"Israel is not the only member state ... that has exercised its sovereign right not to accede to the NPT due to its national security considerations, yet Israel is the only state that has been singled out, and is called upon to take a decision which is against its best national interests."
