VIENNA - The United States took renewed aim at Syria during an International Atomic Energy Agency meeting on Monday, expressing "strong reservations" about a technical cooperation project between the UN body and Damascus.

Even though the move was not related to the crackdown on dissent in the Arab state, it was another sign that Damascus was facing growing international pressure and scrutiny. On Saturday, the Arab League suspended Syria from the group.

The project singled out by the United States concerned preparatory work for a planned nuclear power plant in Syria.

It is part of IAEA activities to help countries benefit from the peaceful uses of the atom - in areas ranging from energy to agriculture and health - but such assistance is at times sensitive as nuclear technology can also have military uses.
